Happy Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Day/Girls’ Day)
Today in Japan is Hina-matsuri (雛祭り), known as Doll’s Day/Girl’s Day.
Picture above taken by @performingk.
Displays using a red carpet are used to show important figures in Japan, with a set of ornamental dolls that show the Emperor, Empress and other characters.
The displaying of dolls began in the Heian Period (794 – 1185AD), and has its origins in a festival called hina-nagashi.
While I have been out and about I have noticed random things for this festival, such as Hishimochi and other cute items that can be seen below.
They have so many girly gifts , which look so cute. Even a different Caramel Corn.
Above you can see a close-up on the drinks and other sweets.
I noticed they were selling Fanta Peach (もも = Momo), to try and cash in on the event? I wasn’t too sure if it was launched especially..but I had to try it .
The Fanta tastes pretty nice , and is pretty sweet as well.
I wish all the girl’s who read this, a Happy Girl’s Day!
