The following photos and writing are from MFG's lovely Ayumi! Up until Girls Day (ひな祭り), on March 3rd, we will be celebrating with posts celebrating the event.
Japan has so many festivals to celebrate.
After Setsubun, Japanese start getting ready for this festival : ひな祭り（Hina Matsuri) which is March 3rd. This is the day of praying for a girl's health and happiness.
I am sure the super markets and the shops in Japan are full of Hinamatsuri stuff such as ひ なあられ（Hinaarare: rice cracker),お雛様( Hina doll) and ちらし寿司( Chirashi sushi: Scattered sushi) right now.
For those of you who think making sushi is very hard, I will teach you the easiest way.
Sushi rice: 2 cups
Sushi Taro：Sushi mix （You can buy at Uwajimaya or Amazon！)
Kinshi tamago (1st photo): Shredded garnish made from paper-thin cooked eggs.
The hardest part is making the paper-thin cooked eggs but you can just make scrambled eggs.
So all you should do is cook rice and add Sushi taro and mix it and put Kinshi tamago as a topping. It can be vegetarian or you can add boiled shrimp and salmon roe.
The last photo is my Ohinasama. I put them out every year. This is 九谷焼 (Kutani ware: porcelain from my hometown). ... See MoreSee Less
