Japan has many festivals during a year to tie people together in family and community relationship. Hinamatsuri begins new blessed time in March for everyone, especially a young couple and young people and children who can preserve traditional values.

My J friend said she decorates the Hina Dolls in her living room every year and yet, no one marries her still....She's 39.

Not sure what to think of it. It is on one hand amazing, beautiful but on the other hand scary and like cleo says 'mass something' reminding me of NK.

Let's just hope the dolls don't twitter and form into a democratic uprising. They're all assembled in the middle of town already.
