"A life of celebration"

Celebrating the seasons means reaffirming the joy of growing children and gratitude for living by ``arranging our lives, decorating with the seasons, and eating celebratory foods.'' Through celebration, we can recycle our current environment and lifestyle.

Enjoy the richness of spending time with celebrations at one of the turning points of the changing seasons.

Celebrating Doll's Festival on March 3rd

March 3rd – Hinamatsuri

Although the Hinamatsuri on March 3rd is a national holiday, it is not a public holiday, so it is not necessarily a holiday. (The Boy's Festival on May 5th is a holiday, not as a holiday, but as Children's Day.)
Until last year, during the holidays before and after the Doll's Festival, I would go to visit shrines with my parents, or get together with relatives for dinner, but this year was my first time having the Doll's Festival with just my family.
I start getting ready in the morning, buzzing with excitement and humming along with my daughter.

1. Dressing in a special outfit on a “special day”

There are various celebrations throughout the year.
From seasonal events to small celebrations and personal events such as birthdays.

These days, my daughter is a girly girl who loves fashion, so I've been making it a point to dress well even at home so that I can enjoy participating in celebrations .

And on special days like today, parents look forward to watching their daughter grow up.


“Should I wear a dress or Japanese clothes?”

I'm glad that I can now worry about this and that, but I'm still at the age where I often have trouble getting ready.

Just as adults feel good when they wear the clothes they want to wear or dress in a special way, small children similarly feel good and feel special when they dress in a special way.

This year, the Shichi-Go-San festival is coming up, and it's a time when many new experiences are coming. I also want them to be exposed to various atmospheres and situations little by little so that they don't think of such ``special'' as scary or strange, and gradually get used to it.


【No. 1】
Let's turn on the lights and lanterns.
Let's give you flowers, peach blossoms
Five-nin Bayashino flute drum
Today is a fun Doll's Festival
[No. 2]
Odairi-sama and Ohina-sama
We both have a sorry face
To my sister who has become a bride
A very similar white face

A shining light on a golden lantern
A faintly shaking spring breeze
Did you try a little white sake?

Change your kimono and tie it on
I am also swollen today.
Spring Yayoi, this beautiful day
The happiest of all is Doll's Festival

Festivals are a time to face growth once again amidst the busyness of daily life.
My daughter, who is 1 year old and 2 year old, is holding a hina doll that has been lined up next to her on her first festival day .

I think seeing her all dressed up and smiling will be a great gift for the Doll's Festival, not only for me and my husband, but also for my parents, as it will make them feel like they've grown up.

Point your camera and make memories.

Today is a fun Hinamatsuri.


“Living with celebrations vol.1 (Peach Festival edition)”

A one-of-a-kind photographer who captures the loveliness and atmosphere of “that moment” with the exquisite essence. The expressiveness and nostalgic nuances that feel strangely familiar are endlessly gentle and warm. Every time I look back at the photos, I come across photos that remind me how important "the present" and "the present moment" are, shine a spotlight on "in our lives," and gently teach us methods for welcoming daily life happily. Masu.
