Kodomo no Hi

We Japanese will soon have the "Kodomo no Hi" on May 5th. This day is a national holiday.

It's the day to celebrate the healthy growth of boys.

People celebrate with Musha-Ningyo (Samurai doll) and/or Koinobori (carp streamer).

These Furoshikis are for the day.

Just for your information, March 3rd is the day to celebrate girls.
