Hinamatsuri (von mtsuyugu)
Today Japan celebrates hinamatsuri ひな祭り (Princess festival), a festival to pray for young girls health and happiness. Every family with a daughter sets up such a platform with a set of so called hina ningyô 雛人形 (Princess dolls), showing the Emperor and the Empress on the highest step. The more steps, the more of the attendants of a traditional Heian court can be displayed. And the more steps, the more expensive it gets. There are also strict rules about where you have to put which doll, and most girls are not allowed to play with them, because they are so expensive.
You are also expected to put the dolls away immediately after hinamatsuri or it will result in a late marriage for the daughter.
My new workplace will be in Tōkyō, so I am now thinking about moving closer. But not to Tōkyō, too crowded and too small apartments for way too much money. Yokohama would be nice. I have some friends living there a little bit outside of the center in affordable yet not too small apartments!
