On March 3, Japan celebrates the popular annual celebration of “Hina Matsuri”, which in translation is called “girls Holiday”. “Hina Matsuri ” — literally “doll Festival” (“Hina” ” doll, “Matsuri” — a holiday). He has several names: “Jesi-but sakku” — the Celebration of the first day of the snake; “Momo-but sakku” — the feast of the flowering peach.

To this day virtually in every household on a special stand “hinadan” exhibit a richly dressed doll, called “hin-ning,” and depicting the life of the Imperial court, writes RIA Novosti .
