March 3rd is the day of the Peach Festival, which is one of the seasonal festivals in Japanese tradition. The festival, which dates back more than 1000 years, historically signaled the time that flowers on peach trees started blooming in Japan's old, lunisolar, calendar. Around the 17th century, it became a day for girls to pray for good health and growing up. Its other name is the Doll’s Festival. This is because we display special dolls. It’s also common to enjoy special food and drink; hina-arare or hishi-mochi, shiro-sake and chirashi-zushi. In supermarkets or shops, these related snacks and foods in modern styles are sold.
