Koinobori on Children’s Day May 5th

WindsockLast day of my trip in Japan, my niece Rei, mother Tsuyo and I went to a Taiko concert in Higashi Matsushima, Miyagi Prefecture. Several Taiko groups from the coastal areas gathered to perform. One of the performers, Kento Ito Electronic Cigarette, who lost 4 family members started this event last year for a tribute of his brother. Hundreds of Koinobori were donated from all over Japan for this event.
