Koinobori – Carp Wind Socks in Japan for Boys Day

Ayako Egawa wrote to me today about a Koinobori event she went to in Japan. Koinobori are large carp windsocks that are displayed for Tango no Sekku (Boys Day) outside homes in Japan. The carp is a symbol for the holiday because they’re considered strong and determined. Here’s Ayako’s note with the pics she shared. 

I found an event called “Art Koinobori” in the park today.

The artists created their own Koinobori and they are displayed in the air.

They look modern and colorful.

Also there is an big Koinobori tunnel where we can walk inside, too.
