“Koinobori” – Carp Streamer

In Japan we have a traditional event in May 5th which is children’s day. In that day we place “Koinobori”, carp streamer in the sky. Koinobori is a flag looks like a carp made of fabric.

We put them in honor of children and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
Typical koinobori is made of a combination of five-color streamers, we call “Fukinagashi” and three (or more) carp streamers. If we do not have enought space to hang koinobori outdoor. you can buy indoor koinobori which is a small size of them.
