Lovely Barbie dressed as a Princess of Japan, part of the Dolls of the World Collection. Barbie doll is The Princess of Japan during the late 19th century. Today she is visiting a garden with her friends. Although she often wears elaborate costumes for ceremonial events, today she wears a traditional Kimono for this informal outing away from the palace. Her long sleeved Kimono is beautifully decorated in a colorful pattern of floral scenery in orange and pink tones. An Obi in multi-hues of green wraps at her waist and is accented with a white cord. She wears Zori sandals and adorns her near black hair, worn up in a bun, with three white flowers.

I did not realize how much I'd missed her until I found her on here. This doll is not for collection purposes for me, but the box was perfect, and it had all of the pieces intact. The little passport from my childhood was even inside.
I am so glad that I was able to find this Barbie on here. She has brought me great joy. <3
Although she is lovely (the face could be a little more Eastern) and the kimono is a kimono and she has the wedge heeled sandals and obi, I feel it fell through a little in the choice of color/pattern, as well as the hairstyle. It's far too simple and with all the amazing and unique Japanese hairstyles that exist, I feel a simply bun with 3 flowers around the base was a cop-out, especially compared to the Korean princess doll and the China princess doll). I think a princess from the Heian period, a hightlight of ancient Japanese history, and a major icon when one thinks of Japanese history (where the hair was very long, straight, and cut with blunt pieces to frame the neck and face and all the royalty wore 12-layer robes of amazing pattern and color)would have made for a much more stunning doll. However, I still feel she is very pretty and does a far better job presenting actual Japanese features and clothing compared to previous so-called "Japanese" barbies.
I am very happy with this doll as it represents the Japanese cultural dress very well.
