About a year or so after I got here, I got sick. Really really sick. So sick that I almost left Japan. I had no idea what was wrong with me....

Cute cakes for Hinamatsuri
On March 3rd, the doll festival "Hinamatsuri" is celebrated. Hinamatsuri is girl's day in Japan. Platforms covered with a red carpet are used to display a set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period. Here is an example of the dolls.
Of course there are cute sweets to help celebrate!
