A festival held on the 3rd of March for the well being of young children. Me and two of the local kids from Iwama Town. Next to us are dolls (ningyo), passed down from generation to generation, usually arranged on a five or seven-tiered stand covered with a red carpet. At the top are the Emperor and Empress.
