In Japan, platforms are traditionally covered with a red carpet and used to display a set of ornamental dolls that represent the Emperor, Empress, and royal subjects in traditional attire.
The custom of displaying dolls began because people believed that dolls were able to trap bad spirits. Straw hina dolls were set afloat on a boat and sent down a river to the sea, taking troubles and bad spirits with them, and helping to protect the safety of children.
