The Goat Year & Hinamatsuri at Liang Court

I think my favourite place where I experience the Goat Year festivities is Liang Court.  I just think they do things so well and I guess I am a Japanophile?

Hinamatsuri is Doll’s Day or Girl’s Day and is celebrated each year in Japan on the 3rd of March so I guess I can revisit Liang Court to catch more of this festival. It’s a custom of displaying dolls (as the dolls are believed to have the power to remove bad spirits). The dolls must be taken down on the 4th of March though. I would love to see this festival in action in Japan. I have to confess I don’t know much about it apart from reading about it on the internet.
