Girl's Festival (桃の節句)

March 3rd is a day of the traditional event called the Doll's Festival(Hina-matsuri 雛祭り) in Japan. Another called; Girl's Festival. This is a day to pray for young girl's growth and happiness. Most families display set special dolls(Hina-doll)and peach blossom for Hina-matsuri. Why peach flower? becus of the peach blossom season on the old lunar calender.

 ・・・ full set type.

They're usually arranged on a five or seven-tiered stand covered with a red carpet. At the top are Emperor and Empress. (In the Kanto area display the Emperor in the left. But in the Kansai area display the Emperor in the right.)

Next step contains three court ladies, followed by five musicians, two ministers, and three servants ending the bottom row in a five-tiered display. There're also small pieces of furniture, small meal dishes, and other things. There are three kinds doll set. [7tier/13 doll set(Full set), 3 tier/5doll set, 2 doll set(Emperor and Empress)]

There is the song for Hina-matsuri. Japanese song ↓ (For your information!)

The first meaning of this song; Tytle is "Happy Hina-matsuri"♪~

Let's light up the lamps.

Let's arrange the peach blossoms.

Listen to the five musicians playing the flutes and drums.

We'll have fun on Hina-matsuri day!

btw, May 5th is Children's Day(another called; Boy's Festival). While Children's Day is a national holiday, but Hina-matsuri is no.
