Japanese Traditional Dolls Wallpapers

Japanese traditional dolls have a very unique and caracteristic look. A lot of japanese people think that they look cursed and they are quite scary. They certainly are sometimes!

Even though, dolls are traditionally important in Japan cultures, and a very world-wide recognised form of handicraft.

There are also a whole bunch dedicated just to the dolls festival, the Hina Matsuri (Traditional Japanese Girls Festival)

Enjoy these wallpapers and the amazing japanese doll's looks!
