March 3 is the Girl's Festival in Japan.
People wish girl's fortune and growth.
This event is called "Hina-matsuri" or "Momo-no-Sekku" in Japaneses.
"Hina" means small doll, "matsuri" means festival.
"Momo" means peach flowers, "sekku" means festival's day, "no" is postpositional particle.
On this day, many girls's fathers and mothers display male and female dolls called Hina-ningyo.
"Ningyo" means doll.
Hina-ningyo expresses widding emperor and empress.
