To 5/May. 333 koinobori and a giant sanmanobori at Tokyo Tower 3.4
from 4/7 '18 to 5/6 '17
At the 333 meter tall landmark of Tokyo, Tokyo Tower,
333 koinobori (carp banner) and a giant Sanmanobori (saury banner) are swimming in the sky. This traditional springtime event is on till 5/May.
Koinobori, meaning carp banner or carp streamer are carp shaped wind stocks flown to celebrate Tango-no-sekku, a traditional calendar event (now designated a national holiday, Children’s Day, 5th of May).
Landscapes across Japan are decorated with koinobori from April to early May, in honor of children for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
The Japanese consider carp the most spirited fish -- so full of energy and power that it can fight its way up swift-running streams and cascades.
