Carpe Diem #839 Kodomo No Hi (Children’s Day, former Boys Day)

The Japanese call the colorful carp-like streamers flying during this festival Koi-Nobori,  Hoisted on bamboo poles these streamers fill with wind and seem to swim in the air. A carp is flown for each son in the family, a very large one for the eldest, the others ranging down in size.
