Koinobori, symbol for children’s day

Have you seen colorful carps flying in the sky in Japan?

You would usually see them from April to early May.

It’s the symbol for children’s day, which is today, May 5th.

It’s also the last day of the Golden Week.

We saw one at Hitachi Seaside Park. Jay wrote about our field trip to the park here. (It’s in Japanese though.)


If you go to Hitachi Seaside Park, you can still make it to see the hill full of Nemophila!


Okami :roll:
