Finally, after celebrating the minds and the landscape of Japan, we invite you to celebrate those who are the future benefactor of both; the youngsters!
May 5th is Children’s Day since 1948, but an institution around the country for about 1500 years.
Originally it aimed at praising the fathers and the sons. (The daughters and mothers being celebrated during the Hina Matsuri of March.)
Nowadays May 5th have enlarged it’s perspective and honor both daughters and sons well-being and happiness.
Traditional decorations (still carrying masculine overtones) such as carp-shaped streamers or dolls of famous heroes and warriors (symbolizing the vitality and strength wanted for the children to inherit) are still displayed.
By chance, Kyoto Kimono Rental Wargo offers also a selection of children’s kimono.
Make your child the idol of the day; reserve now!
