Look for Flying Carp on Boy’s Day

Introduction to this Japanese holiday celebrated on May 5, known as Kodomo no Hi (Children’s Day). “To call it ‘Children’s Day’ is a modern attempt to be inclusive, but most Japanese still consider it Boy’s Day.” Includes a description about how this day is celebrated, such as the hoisting of large paper koi (carp) with one koi for each son in the family.
