鯉のぼり

神戸酒心館のミニ田んぼに鯉のぼりを掲げました。
もともとは雨の日に掲げられていたそうですが、いつしか青空に泳ぐ姿がイメージされる日本の伝統行事です。
ゆったりと泳ぐ姿は見飽きることがありません。

“Koinobori”
Koinobori are cloth streamers in the shape of a carp which are flown on a tall pole on Children’s Day.
Carp are believed to be fish capable of climbing up stream against rapid currents and overcoming all manner of obstacles.
In Japan, we have custom of hanging out carp streamers on Children’s Day to pray that boys in the house will take after carp and live their lives strongly.
