Photographer's Note

I went to the World Folk Doll Museum in Suzaka City today. They had a huge Hina Doll display going on there (i'll post pics soon).

For those who aren't familiar with the Hina Matsuri here in Japan, as quoted from Wikipedia:

The Japanese Doll Festival (雛祭り, Hina-matsuri?), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3, the third day of the third month. Platforms with a red hi-mōsen are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (雛人形 hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.

This picture was one of the many Dolls from around the world, this one obviously representing Japan. I thought the framing actually made it look like a print of of geisha that I sometimes see coming out of Japan.
