A kite fish? Is this really koinobori?

If you have ever had the chance to visit Japan you will undoubtedly have noticed this type of kite.

This is a Japanese lucky charm unique to the archipelago.

It is particularly on the day of Kodomo No Hi (or Children's Day) that you will see the "koinobori" floating at the four corners of each town and village of the archipelago.

For this event, carp in brighter colors will delight the eyes of young and old alike.

Despite the wonder, as a tourist, we asked ourselves a question (that you might also ask yourself.)

Choosing a carp as the symbol of a celebration is a bit strange, isn't it?

Don't worry, it's easily explained.

There is an old, somewhat mysterious legend in Japan.

In summary, she tells us that certain fish continually swim up rivers in the secret hope of one day reaching a magical place where they could transform into a dragon.

Whether this is true or not, the fact is that none of them ever got there.

After hearing this story, everything became clear in our minds. We immediately understood why kite fish were given to children.

It actually represents perseverance and tenacity in the face of hardship, values ​​that Japanese society has decided to pass on to future generations.

Offering this "koinobori" kite to your little ones (while not forgetting to tell them its story) could therefore be a great proof of love, the expression of your desire to instill in them moral values ​​full of strength and stability.
