歴史 History

This 鎧 Ko-yoroi, Child armour

Children’s Day 子供の日 (Kodomo no hi). Better known as ‘boy’s day’ or タンゴなし節句 Tango no sekku (虹彩お祭りIris festival). During this festival, the girls wear a beautiful Kimono and the boys wear a Yoroi.

On this day, a family shows neighbors that there are boys in the family by haningout a koi no bori: The top carp represents the father, the second the mother, the next the son(s).

This tradition can be traced back to the Edo period, Samurai flags were displayed with carp synbols, as a sign of strength.

Inside there are dolls with traditional Samurai clothing and Kabuto exhibited, with the wish that the son will grow up to be a fearless warrior / man.
