We have two important festivals in March and April - Doll's Festival and Cherry Blossoms (Sakura).
On March 3, we have Doll's Festival. Doll’s Festival is called "Hinamatsuri" and it is an occasion to pray for young girls’ growth and happiness.
Most families with girls display dolls for the Doll’s Festival called Hina-ningyo. Today, we eat traditional dishes like Scattered sushi(chirashi-sushi), clam soup, sweet white sake(shirozake), rise cake cubes hina arare) and diamond-shaped rice cakes(hishimochi) for the Doll’s Festival.
From March we celebrate the Cherry Blossom season, the transition from Winter to Spring. For a few much anticipated weeks we witness the pretty pinks of the blossom decorate the streets of our towns and great monuments. You can read about it here.
