Kodomo no Hi, or Children’s Day, is a National Holiday in Japan celebrating children’s personalities and happiness. One will see an endless number of windsocks depicting koi fluttering in the breeze. These are called koinobori and will feature a red or pink fish to represent the mommy, a black fish for daddy and an additional fishy for each child. Koi represent strength of spirit, energy and determination – all things that will see a child to success.
