"Momo no Sekku" -Hinamatsuri-

We had tremendous snowfall in the east Japan in February, and its damage was also enormous.

But March is coming!

I hope the winter ends and the spring will be closer.

 

We wrote about "Momo no Sekku(桃の節句)" last year on this blog below.

Today we introduce how to spend "Momo no Sekku".

(It has unique characteristics that change according to each region.)

  1. Display Hina dolls

  2. Arrange Peach-blossoms

  3. Eat Chirashi sushi(uncaked sushi), clam clear soup, Hishi mochi (rhombus-shaped mochi), sweet white sake, sweetened rice-flour cakes.
    Clam express girl's virtue and chastity and lotus root or/and shrimp of Chirashi sushi ingredients is lucky charm.

  4. Celeblate this festival with grandparents in the case of baby's first annual festival.
