Beautiful photographs capture the essence of two Japanese holidays as they are celebrated in Hawaii. Brief text describes the origin, significance, and customs of Girls Day -March 3- and Boys Day -May 5- highlighting the similarities and differences between community, school, and family celebrations in Japan and in Hawaii. The binding produces two books in one with two front covers. Girls' Day features dolls, kimonos and hishi-mochi diamond-shaped rice cakes. Boys' Day features carp kites, samurai, iris kashiwa-mochi rice cakes and chimaki rice dumplings. Both books include many photos of girls and boys enjoying their special days.
Hardbound: 64 pp.
