The Events and Flowers in March
Hina Matsuri (hina festival) is the most popular event in March in Japan.
In Nakayama, many hina dolls are decorated in shops and landmarks from
JR Sobu Line Shimousa Nakayama Station to Nakayama Hokekyoji Temple from
middle of February to March 3rd or 4th. Of course, two sets of hina dolls
are decorated in the Station. This event is called 'Nakayama no Ohina Maturi
(Hina Festival in Nakayama)'. And the dolls are decorated in Seikaen, Awa
Jinja Shrine, Onjuin Temple, Nakayama Hokekyoji Temple, Nakayama Oku no
In, Kaii Higashiyama Memorial Hall and some shops in Nakayama. It is very
interesting to see these landmarks in this period. When visitors see the
dolls on the red clothe, they could feel that spring is coming. The Hina
Festival is very enjoyable while you visit them all.
Moreover, Kawazu Sakura blossoms are as beautiful as hina dolls, they fully
bloom in March.
Why don't you visit them to find spring?
