Japanese Doll Festival is also called girl's festival. Hinamatsuri or Hina Matsuri is celebrated on 3rd of March, people display dolls dressed in old-style kimonos.

On this day, families with girls wish their daughters a successful and happy life. Dolls are displayed in the house together with peach blossoms.
