Hinamatsuri - Girl's Day And Hina Arare Sweets

Hinamatsuri is the Japanese Girls’ Day, celebrated every year on 3 March. On this day, families with daughters set the dolls at home. The doll decorations are very beautiful. This is a handmade set that I received, a very special present indeed.

Hina Arare are traditional sweets for Hinamatsuri, today's festival.
