Submitted by: Ben Makino and Sarah Rector (Porterville California, USA)

I’ve told my wife, Sarah, about how we had koinobori that we would fly on children’s day when I was a kid. So, this year, when the JANM had some special purple koinobori available, we bought one and set it up in our back yard. It was a real joy to be able to see some koi fluttering in the breeze again, and I’m looking forward to putting it up again next year!
