Hinamatsuri or The Doll Festival is celebrated on 3rd March every year. On this day, families pray for the growth and happiness of young girls in their household. Another name for this festival is Momo no sekku (Peach Festival) because of the peach blossom season on the old lunar calendar.
To celebrate this seasonal event here in Kuala Lumpur, we organized a special event on 26 February at our office. 130 participants separated into 5 sessions enjoyed the Tea Ceremony Demonstration, Tea Tasting in the tatami room (Japanese room), and origami workshop in a classroom. Hina Dolls on the 7-tiered stand were also exhibited at the lobby area to create Hinamatsuri atmosphere at the venue.
