The rich culture of Japanese dolls dates back to 3000 B.C., but it was through the use of finer materials and more polished techniques during the Edo Period (1614-1868) that they made the largest gains in popularity.
Various dolls are used during festivals. Among them are hina dolls, which are displayed during the girl's festival and samurai dolls, which are displayed during the boy's festival.
Religious Talismanic, Offerings, Souvenir: Talismanic - Dolls were made for children before or at birth, and kept near them to distract evil spirits.
Offerings - Dolls offered up usually have a function (like the protective dolls for children) of substituting for or representing the person offering them.
Souvenirs - Several types of dolls originated as items made by monks to be sold at shrines.
Festival family, personal, Public: Family & Personal - Several annual festivals revolve around decorating the house in a particular way, and two in particular involve, or used to involve, dolls such as mentioned above; Girls' Day and Boys' Day.
Public - Many localities celebrate historical/religious festivals by pulling huge floats or carts through the town, and these carts often include dolls, images of historical, legendary, or religious figures, and especially mechanical dolls.
Gift Personal, Commemorative: Personal - Because gift-giving is so important in Japanese culture, nearly all types of dolls are appropriate gifts.
Commemorative - This is a special category, particularly significant in modern business. Dolls are sometimes made to order for a company to give as gifts to its personnel, or for presentation by an official group to an official person or group on a special occasion.
Souvenir and Heirloom: Souvenir - This would include the category of religious souvenirs discussed above, but also the myriad folk dolls of Japan, each produced in and associated with a particular locality.
Heirloom - Festival dolls may take many hours of labor to create, and look extremely fine, but they are by their nature and stuffing not durable.
Decoration, Craft Hobby & Play: Decoration - A very fine hakata or oyama type doll would harmonize with the scroll and flowers of the season.
Craft Hobby - Doll making is a popular craft, something that women in particular seem always to have enjoyed doing. Play - Doll play has evidently been a feature of the Japanese girl's life for over 1,000 years.
