Upcoming Event: Hinamatsuri (Girl's Day)
Yoko and I are showing our true, girly colors by celebrating Hinamatsuri (Girl's Day) at Umami Mart! We had to do it -- Yoko's mom spent over a decade making a traditional ohinasama (ornamental doll) display with five tiers (!) that we felt we absolutely must showcase. Girl's Day in Japan lands on March 3 every year, and is a day to reflect and celebrate a woman's happiness. In general I would say this holiday is meant for younger ladies, but let's celebrate all women this Friday at our Hinamatsuri party!
Hinamatsuri Girl's Day Party with Japanese sweets by Bay Alien and amazake (sweet sake) by Yoko. Plus a five-tier ohinasama doll display hand-made by Yoko's mama.
WHEN: First Friday 3/1, 6-8pm
WHERE: Umami Mart
Oakland, Pop-Up Hood
BART: 12th Street
See you Friday!
