Shizuhara area – Children’s Day –
This fish-figure flag is called “Koi-Nobori”.
“Koi” means a fish “carp”. And “Nobori” means a banner.
This is a traditional way to celebrate for our kids (especially boys) with this banners. Because we image a carp as a fish climbing up waterfall, we celebrate for wishing boys to vigorously grow up like a carp.
