Hina Matsuri traditions?

So... hina matsuri on Friday. We have three girls so we have the imperial dolls display up. I usually do crafts with the kids coming up to the day and on the day the kids dress up and we take loads of photos. We've been to see Japan's largest pyramid of dolls. We always have a party with family. MIL takes care of the food, which is traditional celebration food. They sing the songs they learn at school. Just curious if anyone has any nice Hina Matsuri traditions they'd like to share? Thanks

    Wow! That's awesome! I've only been doing this for a couple of years, and this year we didn't have space to put the dolls out at our house (we've got a 7 tier display hiding at my in-laws' place) so they set up the top tier and we went to have lunch (special order bento box) as one big happy family. My MIL sang the song. I understood more of it this year than last year. My daughter ate mostly cake and ran around like a crazy person. Good times.

Photo Printing

Hi! I'm looking for recommendations for websites that allow you order photo prints online and that charge around 10 cent a print. What do you all use to bulk order photos? Thank you.

Best products for bad skin?!

My skin has hated me ever since I had my second baby - breakouts all the time, and it’s really starting to weigh on me. Do you have any favorite products for breakout prone skin? Has anyone ever gone to a doctor for advice here for acne prone skin? I’ve heard that Japan doesn’t prescribe oral medications for acne so I’m stumped in that regard too - not sure if going to a doctor here would yield any results.
