Koinobori (carp streamer) are carp-shaped windsocks traditionally flown to celebrate Tango no Sekku (Children’s Day) on May 5 in Japan. Koinobori are decorated from April to early May, in honor of sons for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.

The Koinobori made in Kazo-city, Saitama Prefecture is very large and very famous.
