Now displaying Hina Matsuri dolls with 7 shelves in front of the Ise-Shima Restaurant (located in the lobby of the Miayko Hybrid Hotel).  Stop by to see their delicate and beautiful figures and costumes. Ise-Shima is also offering a Hina-Doll Bento Lunch Special – $30, plus tax.

Hina Matsuri is held on March 3rd.  This is a festival for celebrating girls’ growth and good health.  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, court ladies, ministers and court musicians.  The girls are expected to be as elegant as these courtly ladies.

Young girls wear their beautiful Kimonos and get together before the display and have a good time, eating sweet rice crackers (Hina-arare) and drinking white sake (Shirozake/Amazake).  It is also known as the Peach Festival.

The Hina-Doll display and lunch special will be offered March 1st – 14th, 2021.
