I would like to introduce “Children’s day” in Japan.
The “Children’s Day” is on May 5th in Japan.
On the day, we celebrate children’s happiness, their health and growth.
The origin of the Japanese Boy’s Festival can be traced back to the Chinese tradition of exorcism.
When a shogun (genera) was born in the Edo era, he was celebrated on May 5th.
In China, “carp” has been a symbol of success in life,
Therefore, carp streamers have come to be decorated in hope of a boy’s success in Japan.
The reason for decorating armor is because parents
want their children to become strong men.
I think we will be spending Children’s Day at home this year due to the corona-virus,
But since you are at home, I want you to enjoy your family time.
May everyone have a wonderful “Children’s Day”!
