Girl's Day -3rd Mar.

Do you know about Girl's day?
It's on the 3rd of March every year.

People display graceful dolls in ancient court costumes
on a tier of 5 or 7 shelves covered with scarlet cloth.
These dolls represent the Emperor and Empress,
the court ladies, the ministers and the court musicians.
The girls are expected to be as elegant as these courtly ladies.

There is an event for Girl's day at Shimogamo shrine.

TIME: 10:30am -

The event called " Nagashi bina",paper dolls floated downriver.
