Japan House celebrates Hinamatsuri, or Girls' Day, each year, and this year's celebration is happening March 3rd from 2 to 4:30 p.m.
There will be all sorts of wonderful things packed into that afternoon including:
- A display of traditional Hinamatsuri dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in the traditional court dress of the Heian era (794-1185 AD)
- 2 p.m.- A tea ceremony specifically for girls under the age of 18. Parents are invited to watch. This requires a ticket, and space is limited. You can reserve your spot here.
- 3 p.m.- Origami, Kokeshi Paper Doll crafting, Postcard Ink Stamping, and Ikebana flower arranging
- 4 p.m.- Ju No Kata judo demonstration
You can learn more about all of this at the Japan House website.
