Hinamatsuri Girls' festival ひな祭り

You may know them and you might see them at Cafe Japan.  We have already decorated dolls in the beginning of February.  A traditional festival will be held on 3rd of March in Japan.   We call it Hinamatsuri - Girls' festival.   The parents pray and celebrate their daughters' health, wealth and happiness.  Every year, the special dolls are decorated at home for about a month until 3rd of March.  We enjoy the beginning of the spring season as well and make some special foods and sweets.   We can not enjoy Sakura cherry blossoms and other spring floweres here though we may enjoy making the special sweets here.   Looking forward to meeting you!
