Set of a Hina sushi box, Kouhaku Daifuku mochi with red bean paste and Hinaarare sweet rice crackers for Hinamatsuri

The Japanese Hinamatsuri (Girls’ Day or Doll’s Festival) is held on the 3rd of March every year.

On this day, families celebrate their daughters and pray for their health and happiness. The Hina-matsuri is a very colourful holiday, when families with young daughters display a set of dolls on a platform.

On this special occasion, people usually eat a colourful chirashi-zushi bowl (mixed fish on sushi rice), inari-sushi (tofu pockets filled with rice), and enjoy some sweets like Hinaarare (sugar coated rice crackers) and mochi.

This year we celebrate the Hinamatsuri with a Hinamatsuri Special Set here, at Yoyo Kitchen. This set contains a “Hinabox” of freshly made tuna and cucumber rolls, inari-sushi and edamame spring roll, a pack of Daifuku mochi (one red and one white mochi with sweet red bean paste filling), and a pack of Hinaarare rice crackers, all together for £13.30, available for pre-order now in store and our online shop!
