2018/04/28 Koinobori – Carp Streamer

Yesterday my wife said,

“Don’t you set up Koinobori this year?”.

Oh, no! I had completely forgotten it!!

So I set up it for my son this afternoon, I was very busy for many guests today though…

Koinobori, meaning carp streamer” in Japanese, are carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Children’s Day on May 5th.

We, Japanese set up this Kinobori in honor of children for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
