Children’s Day (こどもの日, Kodomo no Hi)

May 5 is a National Holiday in Japan known as ‘Kodomo no Hi’ (Children’s Day).

This is the day that ‘koinobori’ (koi or carp flags) are put outside public buildings and private homes. The way that the flags wave in the wind looks like carp swimming up stream and represents perseverance and strength as the spirited fish swimming upstream.
