As we look back just a month ago, this Hinamatsuri event on March 1st, 2020 seems to be a dream. Please look at all the smiles in this video. How lucky we were to have you in DIA!

We hope people will be encouraged to stay strong and alive under this terrible COVID-19 situation.

Thank you for coming to HinaMatsuri “Spring is here”.

Hinamatsuri 2020 “Spring starts here” ended with a great success.

We hosted 3185 visitors to DIA on the day which is the largest Hinamatsuri crowds per day in history. The day turned be a sunny and warmer day which helped visitors coming to DIA to enjoy this event. Thank you for coming and big thanks to all performers, volunteers and supported companies to this event.
