The Girl’s Festival
Held on March 3,
Girl's Festival features a display of dolls representing the imperial court displayed on a platform with the emperor and empress at the top and lower ranked attendants or entertainers below.
A meal with special foods and candies is also prepared for the occasion.
During Hinamatsuri and the preceding days,
girls hold parties with their friends.
Typical foods include
ushiojiru (うしお汁) (clam soup, as clam shells represent a joined pair)
chirashizushi (ちらし寿司) (raw fish and vegetables on rice in a bowl or bento box),
hishi mochi (菱餅) (multicolored rice cakes),
As a matter of fact, there is a superstition about Hina dolls.
It is believed that if you keep Hina dolls decorated for too long after the festival, girls will miss the chance to get married!
