Ohinasama - Chop Stick Cover

I explained about Girls' festival. I had lunch @ Cafe Zinc in Shimokitazawa today. ( Very late... I was busy, so lunch was around 4 p.m. ! ) Dish was served with this chopstick cover. ( Inside, there was a pair of chopstick. )

These are the couple, the main characters of Girls' Festival. They are actually prince and princess. It seems like this tradition originates from Heian Period's aristocrats' play... probably children played with dolls. Heian period is a.c. 794-1185.
