Japanese display dolls range from Gosho dolls, with chubby toddler-like features, to Hina Girls Day dolls, which resemble older children. The highlight of this exhibition is a set of Showa Era (1926-89) Hina dolls that were commissioned by Koyata Iwasaki, the fourth president of Mitsubishi, for his wife Takako. Made by the renowned craftsman Oki Heizo V (1885-1941), the 15 dolls were later acquired by the collector Kiyomi Kirimura, who donated them to the museum in 2018.

Also on display is a set of 58 Gosho dolls, made by Heizo in 1939.
