Doll day

“Hina” dolls depicting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy are displayed at Kyugetsu doll company in Tokyo on Thursday. The special “hina” dolls are on display to celebrate the upcoming Doll Festival, or Girls’ Day, slated for March 3. Japanese written between Japanese and U.S. national flags reads: “Friendship.”

    Oh no! This situation is husband and wife. Abe's wife may be jealousy and give him a divorce.

    @kwatt That's why it's written 友好 (friendship) behind the hinaningyo.

    The rule with the dolls is: look but don't touch.

    PM Abe Shinzo is 5ft 10 inches, Ambassador Caroline Kennedy is 5ft 11 in..... looks inaccurate to me unless Abe inherited Kim Jong Il's shoes

    To show 友好 Carolyn doll is sitting on chair. She did not insult short Japanese men, Abe doll has padded waraji-geta. Carolyn is bare feet.
