    Girls Day Celebrations in Japan


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AllanCook came across a display of dolls in Tokyo's Ryougoku train station. He says the display was set up for the celebration of Girls Day. 'Parents usually have a display like this at home and maybe have a little party,' he said. 'I was surprised to see such a long carpet as the display usually only has a carpet beneath the dolls. So it was a very unique style of display.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    In Japan, Girls Day is celebrated on March 3rd. On the special day many dolls are placed on platforms which are placed atop a red carpet. Today, while visiting Ryougoku in Tokyo, I caught a glimpse of this extra long red carpet. At the end of the carpet there were 16 platforms of dolls laid out. Usually the 7th platform marks the bottom! So it was extra lucky to see this extra large display inside Ryougoku Station.
