Pronounced koi-no-bori literally translated “carp banner.” Carp are known as “koi” in Japan, meaning love and affection and considered a symbol of friendship. Around the end of April early May they celebrate children’s day by hanging colorful carp banners throughout Japan to honor sons in hopes that they grow healthy and strong. We went out to admire this scene today, just stunning!
