Happy Children’s Day!

こどもの日 鯉幟 carp streamers

Children’s Day (こどもの日) is today (May 5). This is a Japanese national holiday, the last of Golden Week. The weather for Golden Week has been absolutely fantastic. Every day has been warm and most have been more sunny than overcast.

As part of Children’s Day, people have been flying koinobori (carp streamers) from their homes, temples, shrines, etc. You can’t miss them. I can see some out my window on my neighbor’s balcony as I type this.

I took the photo, above, yesterday at Kainan Jinja (海南神社) in Miura City (三浦市) near Jogashima. We visited Jogashima (城ヶ島), which I will blog about more in the future.
