Koinobori: Strength and Courage by 


May 5 is one of the “seasonal divisions” that we celebrate during the year in Japan. We call this day Kodomo-no-Hi (Children’s Day), the day on which we express our hope that our children will grow up physically strong and courageous against adversity. One of our customs is to run huge carp-shaped windsocks called koi-nobori up a flagpole set up outside specifically for that purpose.
