Kodomo no hi

May 5th is Kodomo-no-hi in Japan, a day to celebrate boys and all children. These beautiful flags, called koi-no-bori, are flying all over our neighborhood. The koi are supposed to represent the boys of the house and their symbolic struggle upstream in life. I love seeing them wave around in the breezes, a sure sign of spring.
