Hina-maturi(the Doll Festival)

We have "Hina-maturi(the Doll Festival)" on March 3.It's the day to pray for healthy growth and happiness for young girls.Most families with girls display dolls for the Doll’s Festival called Hina-ningyo.

Today, we eat traditional dishes like Chirashi Sushi and clam soup for the Doll Festival.

On the day of "Hina-maturi", people eat Sakuramochi, which is a pink rice cake wrapped with a cherry leaf. It has a nice aroma. "Momo no sekku" brings spring to Japan.

"Mocchan - Dango" is recommended to a Girl's Festival by a Dagashi(cheap sweet).It's a glutinous and texture and very sweet.
