Children’s Day (Japan)

Children’s Day in Japan is a national holiday that highlights the importance of creativity, innocence and fun during childhood. It acknowledges the unique nature of children and cultivates their individuality and young individuals. Children’s Day has been a celebration in Japan for decades. A custom is to have koinobori flags and kites on display outside of the homes. Symbolising the strength, determination and bravery of a crap ship swimming upstream, it reflects the tenacity of children.
