Hoist Colorful Carp Streamers In Preparation To Celebrate Children Day

A man hangs cable as he prepares to hoist colorful Koinobori or carp streamers over the Akutagawa river at Akutagawa Sakurazutumi Park on April 24, 2016 in Takatsuki, Japan. Koinobori, meaning 'carp streamer', are traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Tango no sekku, or Children's Day. Children's Day takes place on May 5 and is also a National Holiday.
