ICHIMATSU

ICHIMATSU Refrain

In ancient times, Japanese women fashioned dolls as talismans to protect their children. Dolls were also used in religious ceremonies. Ichimatsu dolls (市松人形) represent little girls or boys. Although the original Ichimatsu was named after an 18th century Kabuki cater, since the late 19th century the term has only applied to child dolls.
