Every March 3rd is the day of Hinamatsuri(雛祭り). We pray for the growth of girls. However, it is not a holiday.

Traditional families with girls decorate dolls called “Hinaningyou(雛人形)” at their house.

The dolls are wearing costumes of aristocracy of more than 1000 years old.

Furthermore, there is a superstition that girls’ marriage is delayed when the removal of the dolls is delayed after the Hinamatsuri.
