Tsumami zaiku was developed during the Edo Period (1603-1868) as a way to enhance the beauty of kimono with hair ornaments that represented the traditional Japanese themes of natural seasonal beauty. Time-honored patterns included chrysanthemums, sakura blossoms, and cranes, but modern tsumami zaiku has a much more lenient design that includes objects like stars and roses.

Video games have come a long way since the days when you were forced to play as one specific main character. If you were a girl who didn’t want to play as a boy character, or even if you were a boy who was tired of playing as a burly man, then your gaming options were limited.

March 3 is Hinamatsuri, or Girls' Day in Japan. Families with girls would celebrate by setting up an elaborate display of dolls representing the Emperor, Empress and court musicians clad in traditional costumes from the Heian Period in Japanese history. Japanese artists, however, are never ones to settle for the boring old dolls. Fusing tradition with their passion for popular culture, they've created some impressive versions of their own doll display. Check out some of our best picks!

It’s March now, and in Japan that means it’s nearly the end of school year. For students in their final year of high school, it’s time for them to move on to college, work, or whatever else they want to do with their lives, and say goodbye to their teachers and friends.
