Festivals: Doll Festival/Hina Matsuri (3rd March)

Type: Reference material

This festival is celebrated in Japan where families with girls wish their daughters a successful and happy life. This tradition dates back hundreds of years from a Chinese custom which says that bad fortune is passed to the dolls and then removed by leaving the dolls on a river. Dolls are beautifully displayed in homes for about a month together with peach blossoms.
