This week’s newsletter is all about Kodomo no Hi, or Boy’s Day, which is a national holiday in Japan held every year on the 5th of May. The day is set aside to celebrate children’s happiness as well as wishing that they will grow up healthy and strong. It is customary for families, especially those with sons, to fly carp-shaped flags outside as it is thought to drive away bad spirits.
