1. Children's Day(▼May 5)
    Children's Day is a national holiday that falls on May 5. It is designated as a day to respect children's individuality and to promote their well-being. As it was originally called Tango no Sekku, or Boys' Day, many families celebrate this day by doing things that honor boys, such as flying koinobori (carp streamers) or displaying warrior dolls. On this day it is also the custom for people to take a bath with iris leaves floating on the surface and to eat kashiwamochi, or rice cakes wrapped with oak leaves.
