The Japanese Doll Festival (雛祭り Hina-matsuri), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3, the third day of the third month. Platforms with a red hi-mōsen are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (雛人形 hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.
In episode 47, Hinamatsuri is first mentioned and celebrated. Koyuki Azumaya, being a ninja, reveals that she has never heard of Girls' Day. Natsumi Hinata then decides to invite Koyuki over to her home so she can experience it for herself.
