About Hina Matsuri
Hina Matsuri, also known as Doll's Day or Girls' Day, is a traditional Japanese festival celebrated on March 3rd. The festival is dedicated to the well-being and happiness of girls in the family.

The central focus of Hina Matsuri is the display of Hina-ningyo, which are special dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians, all dressed in traditional Heian period (794-1185) court attire. These dolls are arranged on a tiered stand called "hina-dan" or "hina-ningyo-dan," which often has several levels.

Families with daughters display these intricate doll sets in their homes. It is believed that the dolls have the power to protect girls from evil spirits and bring them good fortune and happiness. The dolls are usually put on display a few weeks before March 3rd and taken down promptly after the festival to avoid any potential bad luck.

During Hina Matsuri, families may also celebrate by making and enjoying special foods and sweets, such as Hina-arare (colorful rice crackers) and Hishi-mochi (diamond-shaped rice cakes).
