Hinamatsuri: Doll Festival

Hinaarare & Hishimochi
 March 3 is a day for girls called "hinamatsuri" in Japan. It is translated into girls' day or doll festival because a set of ornamental dolls is to be displayed in households with young girls.

I decorated my house with small dolls, hishimochi and hinaarare and ate sushi, wishing my daughter's happiness and healthy growth.
