※ What are koinobori?
Children's Day is celebrated on May 5th each year in Japan.
On this day, in the wish that their boys will grow up healthy, it is customary to display carp-shaped streamers made from cloth in the garden of each home.
Based on a legend about a carp that swam up a waterfall and became a dragon, each family wishes for their boys to grown up strong, just like this carp.
