May 5th is celebrated annually in Japan and in Nikkei communities around the world as Kodomo no Hi (Children’s Day). The day is celebrated by displaying koinobori - carp-shaped windsock with the carp arranged from largest to smallest in different colors to denote the father, mother, and children. Other traditional symbols and special foods include samurai dolls, kabuto (helmet), and kashiwa mochi (azuki-filled rice cakes wrapped in oak leaves).

JANM is celebrating an extended Kodomo no Hi with various activities through May 23! See below for details about a community photo activity organized by JANM’s Discover Nikkei website, a special fun bag for kids from the JANM Store, and fun Instagram stickers.

Presented in collaboration with the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center’s Kodomo no Hi programming. They are offering a virtual bento-making program with cooking blogger and author, Marc Matsumoto, on May 1, as well as a yoroi display and koinobori at the JACCC (details here).
