memory archive — day 83

This Sunday will be Hinamatsuri or Girls’ Day, here in Japan. It takes place every year on March 3rd and is celebrated by families with young daughters, wishing for a healthy and prosperous life for them. Besides the set-up of special dolls at families’ homes there are traditonal foods and beverages that will be consumend. These days all sorts of pink, white and green sweets as well as other treats are being sold in the lead-up to the day. That made me wonder whether the above pictured box of candy that we were given once as a gift (on a different time of the year though) had originally been a Hinamatsuri product. It definitely appealed to my daughter!
