Recently, head mounted displays based on holographic optical elements have been reported. These head mounted displays can be implemented in a compact form factor but the image presented to each eye is still two-dimensional, which causes fatigue in stereoscopic three-dimensional image viewing condition. In this paper, we propose a holographic three-dimensional head mounted display which displays holographic three-dimensional images. We experimentally confirmed that holographic three-dimensional images are presented to each eye through a holographic optical element. In order to reduce the volume and weight of the system, we use one more holographic optical element and perform a simulation based on ray tracing through the two holographic optical elements.
