BOY'S DAY
AND KOINOBORI

Boy's day and koinobori go hand
in hand. From the middle of April, to the middle of May, you see the beautifyl site of carp banners and windsocks everywhere. They signal the changing of the season into Spring. In Tokyo, they fly small famly koinobori from the apartment balconies. In the countryside, whole towns become one big festival of banners. What a glorious site it is. Could you imagine having some koinobori flying in your backyard in America?
