                Yamazato, the signature Japanese restaurant at The Okura Prestige Bangkok, is celebrating the ancient Hinamatsuri Girls’ Festival with special Gozen set lunch and Kaiseki set dinner menus created by Master Chef Shigeru Hagiwara from 25 February – 6 March 2016.

                This historic festival dates back to the Heian Period in Japan (794 to 1185 AD) and the ancient tradition of displaying ‘Hina’ dolls is still popular throughout the country during Hinamatsuri Girls’ Festival on March 3rd every year. In mediaeval times the ‘Hina’ dolls were believed to possess the power to capture evil spirits. Today, the Hinamatsuri festival is an occasion when families wish their daughters a happy and successful life. Superstition dictates that the Hina dolls must be removed from display on March 4th (the day after Hinamatsuri) to avoid the prospect of a late marriage for the daughters in the family.
