May 5th is "Children's Day (" in Japan.
Before that day, families raise "Koinobori (", which are the carp-shaped flags (carp because of the Chinese legend that a carp that swims upstream becomes a dragon, and the way the flags blow in the wind looks like they are swimming), one for each boy (or child). We made the Koinobori by piece of fabrics and decorated.
