I love the way in which you continue to bring us your customs and traditions Hiro, I hope they last a long time.

A nice composition. I always forget which goes on the right, and which on the left! :)

@GJC: 伝統的にはこの写真のように向かって左(人形から見て右)が女雛、向かって右(人形から見て左)が男雛だそうです。顔は真っ直ぐではなくやや内を向くようになっているらしく、左右を逆に並べるとそっぽを向くことになってしまってよくないです。最近はこの写真とは逆のが多いようです。

Beautifully captured Hiro! I love how you have presented the multiple layers of her kimono! Thank you for continuing to share your culture and traditions with us! ;-)
