Hinamatsuri at the Gardens

  • 3 Mar 2019
  • 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Birmingham Botanical Gardens
Join us for a special Girl's Day celebration at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens! Take pictures with our doll displays, eat traditional Japanese snacks, and tour the Japanese gardens for a full day of celebration.

Hinamatsuri is a special Japanese holiday held on the third day of the third month each year dedicated to young girls. Until they are about ten years old, young girls will enjoy a display of ornamental dolls known as hinaningyou, set up on a red tiered display known as a hinadan. Young girls celebrate by having parties with their friends, eating special snacks like ichigodaifuku (strawberries and red bean paste inside mochi rice cake) and hina-arare (special sweet rice crackers).
