March 3 is the Festival of Dolls in Japan, also called Girls’ Day..

“This is the day on which wishes are expressed for the future happiness of girls. A set of dolls dressed in costumes which were worn in the royal court in ancient times are displayed.” quoted from “NIPPON THE LAND AND ITS PEOPLE” published by Nippon Steel Corporation Personnel Development Office.
