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.

Tips for a trip to Nagasaki/Fukuoka/Saga/Oita?

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Living in Miyahara-shi

I have been asked to consider a role that is based in Miyahara-shi. If I went for this job I would be on my own (family will not be able to move initially). Would be good to get some idea of any expat community or life in the area. Whilst I have some very rusty and basic speaking Japanese I would need to be able to communicate at least in the early days in English. Any input?
