As is Hachiman tradition, every piece is made with a story in mind. This design is inspired by Koinobori.
Koinobori is an element of traditional celebration ingrained in Japanese history. From as early as the mid Edo era (somewhere between 1600s – 1800s), these beautiful carp streamers have been used as a way to symbolise and wish success and advancement for children.
When you travel to Japan between late April and early May, you will encounter many displays of koinobori. These colourful streamers are often flown during this period as a celebration of children, peaking on May 5th, the official Children’s Day.
These days, there are multi coloured streamers that will catch the eye of any passer-by. Whether they’re high up in the sky, strung between buildings, or floating low across the streams, these unique carp-shaped streamers will be sure to present stunning imagery.
