What is "Sekku" (Japanese seasonal events)

Choyo-no-Sekku Spring, summer, autumn, winter ...  In Japan, people have been feeling and valuing the change of the seasons, and living with nature.
  “Sekku” is a few of the events held throughout the year with according to the natural cycle.
  “Sekku” has two kanjis, “Setsu” and “Ku”. “Setsu” means the changing of the season, and “Ku” means to offer foods to God. We Japanese have the custom to offer the seasonal foods to God, enjoy the seasons, and shake off disease prevalent at the change of season.
  There are five “Sekku”, “Jinjitsu-no-Sekku”, “Joshi-no-Sekku”, “Tango-no-Sekku”, “Shichiseki-no-Sekku”, and “Choyo-no-Sekku”.
  They all together are called “Go-Sekku”.
 In Togyoku Doll Museum, we try to promote Japanese doll culture with a focus on “Go-Sekku”.
