Boys’ May Festival Dolls

Rituals to pray for the growth of boys have also changed with the passage of time.
In the midst of this transition, Kyoto Shimazu offers a fusion of traditional and modern styles in its Boy’s May Festival Dolls.
Because these dolls celebrate the life of your precious child, we believe it is important that they have beauty, nobility, and depth that are appropriate for the wishes of the child.
At Kyoto Shimazu, we examine each and every decoration with the eyes of a master craftsman and carefully tailor them with sincerity and care.

The helmet protects the most important part of a warrior’s head (his life), and is displayed to pray for the boy’s healthy growth and as a talisman to prevent misfortune.
This armor consists of three parts: helmet, plastron, and large shoulder guards all in one piece. It has the meaning of protecting the whole body, and is intended to protect boys from disasters, illness, and accidents.
