Celebration of Girls Day

February 24 – March 5
Taste of Tea
109 North Street
Healdsburg, CA 95448

March 3rd is the Girls Day Festival, you will be able to view a traditional doll collection belonging to the Tokugawa family in our relaxation lounge; February 24 – March 5.
The custom of displaying dolls began during the Heian period (794-1185) when Kyoto was the capital city and the imperial court was at its’ peak.
Formerly, people believed the dolls possessed the power to contain bad spirits. Hina Matsuri traces its origins to an ancient Japanese custom called hina-nagashi or doll floating when straw hina dolls were set afloat on a boat and sent down a river to the sea, supposedly taking troubles or bad spirits with them.
Today the festival honors girls by praying for health and happiness; with simple to elaborate doll displays representing the imperial court, special foods and teas in homes with girls and in public spaces.
