Hinamatsuri Kiko on Omi-Hino-Merchant Street

We cycled along Omi-Hino-Merchant Street today because Hinamatsuri Kiko was taking place. On March 3rd we have a festival called Hinamatsuri in Japan.


Hinamatsuri, also called Doll’s Day or Girls’ Day, is a special day in Japan, celebrated on 3 March of each year. Platforms covered with a red carpet-material are used to display a set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.


On Omi-Hino-Merchant Street, many houses decorate Hina dolls and display them so that we can see them through their Sajiki-Mado.


We got on Jinrikisha, too.
