The traditional Japanese culture of "wishing happiness and health in the growth of children."
At Ningyo no Yoshifuku, we carry a range of items ranging from dolls such as hina-ningyo (Girls' Festival dolls), gogatsu-ningyo (Boys' May Festival dolls) and ornamental helmets to various Japanese crafts.
Each piece of art is carefully crafted by our artisans.
Our aim is to deliver the beauty and rich history of Japan to the world.
In Japanese traditional culture, each motif has its own meaning and symbolism.
In "kinran" fabric, beautiful patterns are woven using golden threads or gold leaves into the bases of fabrics such as twill, amber, satin, or silk.
No two patterns will be the same, and each pattern produced is truly one-of-a-kind.
Recommended gifts for your loved ones or any celebration.
In Japan originally, there used to be an event known as "Tango no Sekku" on May 5th (now known as "Kodomo no Hi" or "Children's Day"), which was held to celebrate the health and growth of boys.
During this event, ornamental helmets are displayed with the hopes that it will protect children from illnesses and any accidents.
We also carry ornamental helmets featuring famous Japanese warlords such as Tokugawa Ieyasu and Date Masamune.
In Japan, there is a custom of celebrating a girl's first New Year's.
As part of the celebrations, girls are given a hagoita to protect themselves from various evil spirits, so that they can grow up healthy.
We also take orders for custom-made hagoita, and recommend them for this event, or even as a wedding board.
In Japan, there is a custom of celebrating a boy's first New Year's.
