Children's Day Streamers - Koinobori in Kiyosato Yamanashi, Japan

Koinobori - Carp Streamers
5 May 2010, It's Children's Day in Japan. As part of celebrations every year, Japanese homes and cities are adorned with streamers called koinobori. We ran into thousands of these streamers on our way to Kiyosato in Yamanashi, Japan. This is a rare sight as you may find one or a few streamers here and there but not this many streamers(koinobori) in one place.
