JASH Update: Happy Hinamatsuri!
Dear Members & Friends of JASH,
March 3 is Hinamatsuri, also known as Girls' Day or Momo-no-Sekku (Peach Festival). On this day, we wish for the good health and happiness of girls. We also celebrate Hinamatsuri here in Hawaii, with many Nikkei families displaying their hina dolls and enjoying cutely decorated mochi and other snacks. In lieu of our annual JASH Tomodachi Hinamatsuri celebration, this year we've asked our Tomodachi members to share their Girls' Day memories and festive recipes. Please enjoy this special Hinamatsuri JASH Update!
