Hinamatsuri means "flower view" and refers to the traditional festival celebrating the beginning of spring. Traditionally, children would go from house to house with paper flowers attached to a stick, asking for food and sweets. Today, people wear costumes and visit temples or shrines to pray for good weather and hope for a safe journey home for themselves and their families.
Hinamatsuri is held on March 3 each year. It originated as a ritual practiced by Japanese farmers who wanted to protect their crops from evil spirits during times when planting was done under the direction of a farmer who had just bought his land. They believed that if they made an offering of rice balls and tea to the gods before planting their seeds, they would be protected from harm during their labor and successful in growing a crop.
In Japan, people dress up in costume and go door-to-door in order to celebrate the holiday. In addition to eating rice cakes and drinking beer, people give gifts to each other.
Horimiya manga will conclude in March 2021. The conclusion will be published in the April 2021 edition of Monthly G Fantasy. As a result, the manga series will conclude with Horimiya Chapter 122: Graduation (Page 122). Both will be available in the summer of 2021.
