Children's Day/こどもの日

May fifth is Children's day, one of the national holidays of Japan. According to my dictionary, it is established to respect children's personality and to wish their happiness. It used to be called Tango-no-sekku and considered as boys' festival. So, families with boys display traditional Japanese amor or a warrior doll and sometimes hoist carp-shaped streamers.

The photo above was taken at my friend's house. She has a son and for him, his grandmother has displayed the set. He is loved by everyone;)

And next photo is carp streamers called koinoboi. Koi is a carp and nobori means a banner. The reason those banners are shaped carps comes from a Chinese legend that says only carps could swim up a rapid of Yellow Rivers and became dragons. So carps became a symbol of success for boys. The koinoboi in the photo is owned by Kubota Farm;)
