The Hina Matsuri (famously known as the peach festival) is a holiday on the 3rd of March celebrating the growth of a familiy's daughters. As decoration, many families set up a "Hinadan," a platform of multiple layers decorated with dolls of a royal family, their courtiers and presents. Recently there are less and less families preparing Hinadan for Girls Day, but every year a "hinakazari" (princess decoration) is hosted at the previous house of the Kyuuokadake Family (currently Itami Town Hall). It's a spectacular sight to see these dolls from the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa periods decorating the inside of the Edo Period building. Come and enjoy this wonderful mix of tradition, celebration, and cultural experience. Date: February 4th (Saturday) through March 5th (Sunday) Location: Itami City Itami Village Hall (Previous residence of the Kyuuokadake Family) 664-0895 Hyogo Prefecture Itami City Miyanomae 2-5-28 Telephone: 072-772-8830 (Itami City Cultural Property Preservation Association) Open from 10:00 AM ~ 6:00 PM, Free of Entry, Closed every Monday (in the case of Holidays, the hall will be closed the following day instead)
