Go Gatsu Ningyo - May 5 (Boy's Day Doll)- this doll represents Yoshitsune.

Minamoto no Yoshitsune (? ??, 1159 – June 15, 1189?) was a general of the Minamoto clan of Japan in the late Heian and early Kamakura period. Yoshitsune was the ninth son of Minamoto no Yoshitomo. Yoshitsune's older brother Minamoto no Yoritomo (the third son of Yoshitomo) founded the Kamakura shogunate. Yoshitsune's name in childhood was Ushiwakamaru (???).
