Children are celebrated and happiness is wished upon them.
The Children’s Day was originally called Tango no Sekku (端午の節句) and also was a festival for only boys but nowadays this is for both boys and girls.
On Children’s Day, families fly huge carp-shaped streamers called Koinobori(鯉のぼり) outside their house. The Koi (carp) symbolizes strength and success from a Chinese legend – a carp swam upstream to become a dragon.
I have two boys, hence I decided to cook these children’s platter which were packed with their favourite meals.
May you seek to learn and may you learn to live.
