端午の節句

Boy’s Festival

May 5th is Children’s Day and also Boy’s Festival. The Boy’s Festival is a day which celebrates the birth of boys and wishes them to grow up strongly.
A lots of families buy a doll for the Boy’s Festival in May when a boy is born, and is displayed during Boy’s Festival. A doll for the Boy’s Festival in May has decorations on it such as armor and a helmet, and is usually displayed in a transparent case.
In addition, “Koinobori” (carp streamer) is hung outside of the house. A carp made of cloth is added to a stick and swims in the wind. It’s used when praying for the success of a child’s life.

5月5日は子供の日、端午の節句です。
端午の節句とは、男の子の誕生を祝い、
たくましく育つようにと願う日です。
男の子が生まれると「五月人形」を買う家が多く、
端午の節句の時期に飾られます。
五月人形は鎧や兜などの飾りの置物や、
人形に鎧を着せたもの、武者などがあり、
透明ケースに入れられたものが多いです。
また、家の外には「こいのぼり」を飾ります。
棒に布の鯉がつけられ、風で泳ぎます。
子供の立身出世を願ったものです。
