Today is a children's day in Japan.
Before May 5th was a boy's day.
This picture is koi-nobori.
They are made of cloth,these are streamers made to look like carp
and strung on poles outside of the house.
Because the carp will swim upstream and jump waterfalls to get to its
spawning grounds,it is considered a symbol of perseverance and valiant effort.
