The first week of May in Japan is known as Golden Week. It's a week where there is a few national holidays and lots of people are off work and I guess it's a big deal out here. Children's Day is the last holiday during the week and is the reason they hang all the carp flags. They symbolize the mother's/fathers/children and they are hung everywhere. This river we went to had a ton strung over it and around it. So I had to take my pictures!
Summer goal: to paint our own block on the seawall!
