The Japanese Hina-matsuri (Girls' Day or Doll's Festival) is held on the 3rd of March every year. On this day, families celebrate their daughters and pray for their health and happiness. The Hina-matsuri is a very colorful holiday, when families with young daughters display a set of dolls in traditional clothing on a red-carpeted platform.
On this special occassion, people usually eat a colorful chirashi-sushi (mixed fish on sushi rice) bowl, inari-sushi (tofu pockets filled with rice), and enjoy some special sweets like Hinaarare (sugar coated rice crackers) and mochi.
Our delicious Bara-chirashi made of salmon, tuna, prawn, eggs and salmon roes & our ever so popular Daifuku mochi are available for pre-order for the 3rd of March, and you can also find the Hinaarare sweet crackers in store now!
