Girls Day

March 3 is Girl's Day in Japan.

It is a day to celebrate and appreciate girls.

Special foods include: Chirashi Sushi, Sakura Mochi and Clam soup

Some girls (with well off parents or grandparents) will have these beautiful dolls.

It's a shame though, as expensive and beautiful as they are, they are only displayed for a few weeks and then put away for the next year.

It is important that they are not left out too long, as this means a long wait for marriage.

Just another of the many superstitions that people don't really believe, but continue to perpetuate.
