Children’s Day in Japan

In the past, May 5th was a day when families would celebrate the healthy growth of boys, called
“Tango no sekku.”  This day was also known as the day to celebrate a Shogun (General)’s new
born baby. Eventually it turned into a day to celebrate all children and wishing for
their healthy growth.

Traditionally on May 5th families with sons decorate their houses with a flag and Japanese armor, helmets or warrior dolls to wish for their sons' health and success. Families with girls decorate their houses with dolls, known as hina kazari.
