March 3rd is the day  is a traditional family celebration for the health and happiness
of young girls.We display of beautiful dolls set in the family home.

We invite my relatives and friends and celebrate togeter to eat homemade
dishes like sushi and soup using spring ingredients.
Especially popular ingredients for this occasion include tai(sea bream),ebi(shrimp)
and hamaguri(clam).

When i was a child, I used to play traditional girl game like otedama(beanbag juggling),
ohajiki(marbles),and ayatori(string fingers).
Mari-tsuki (ball bouncing) was also popular.
We would bounce a temari(a ball made of colorful silk threads) and sing beautiful,
rhythmical songs.

It is very popluar in spring.
