This was submitted by Kristine Aono from Silver Spring, MD for Discover Nikkei’s Nima-kai Kodomo no Hi Traditions photo activity.


This photo shows my son with the koinobori that we hang on our door every May 5th. We hung one over his crib when he was a baby. That baby is now 22 years old. I hope these family traditions will continue for many generations to come.
