Carp streamers sing a song of the wind, with " Brilliant " Japanese calligraphy



Gentle breeze embraces children.
It is Children's Day on May 5, holiday.

Many smiles will be filled in Japan.





Children express our future.
Will we respect lovely them?

The priority is often mistaken.





Now this moment should be dedicated to children.
For the existence to glisten.

I can look anytime in the future. Just in front of my eyes.






"光" (kou, hikari). It is translated as happy, light, brilliant, shine, beam, ray, only, etc.
This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

Etymology : hieroglyph
The kneeled person is holding it above one's head while bowing.
"火"  (The state to hold it above one's head.)  +  "儿"  (The person who kneeled.)



Yes. The light is important for a human being.
It shines on the darkness.

   The light is the faith.
   The pure heart is the faith.





It is a traditional annual function of Japan.
Children are blessed in the whole country.

  19. Una fiesta dedicada a los niños es una fiesta bonita.
    Me gusta pensar que la luz es la fe, por eso brilla en la oscuridad.
    Son unas fotografías llenas de color y de vida.

    A festival dedicated to children is a nice party.
    I like to think that the light is faith, for that glows in the dark.

  22. R- such brilliant colours in the carp. I remember seeing a whole stream strung with them in Tatebayashi. We are due to return there in a couple of weeks - I wonder if they will be flying again and giving such happiness. Go well. B

  23. What beautiful colors in this photograph. I can imagine children, especially, would love these flying carp. I would love to have some of these for my lovely new granddaughter who arrived April 14th. I just wrote about her today. She is so precious, Ruma, and so welcome in our family which is predominately male! I leave June 1st for another six month sojourn in India. My new shoulder is healed and I am feeling well.

    Blessings to you.

    青い空に泳ぐ沢山の鯉のぼり見事ですね!世界中の子供達がすくすくと育っていきますようにと願わずにはいられません。若いパパが男の子を抱いて歩いてる姿は本当に微笑ましいですネ。息子2人が小さかった頃は毎年庭に鯉のぼりをたてました。鯉のぼりの回りで遊ぶ姿は可愛らしく、今は懐かしい思い出です。
    良い週末を!

  59. Beautiful idea to have this special day for children. I wish the world over would truly show our love and care for children by stopping the use of dangerous and dirty energy. Nuclear Power Plants, Coal, Oil are all bad for our children and their future. Sigh . . . I am not hopeful but this day you give to children is lovely. I love all the images of the cheery carp and the children must love all the lively colors and motion.

  60. On m'avait conté que ces poissons indiquaient les maisons ou vivaient des garçons qui se doivent d'être courageux comme les poissons qui meurent sans un cri ...!!

  61. 日本の全人口に占める子供者割合が、41年連続で減少したと、本日の新聞で読みました。 
    時の流れといってしまえばそれまでですが、ピークはとうの昔に過ぎ去ってしまっていたとは驚きました。

    子供達には地位も資産も選挙権も無いがために、政府からは常にないがしろにされてきました。 
    あまつさえ、本日ただ今の国家予算が将来の孫子世代への付け回しで成立している有様。 老世代の私など、実は生きていられるのが不思議なくらいです。
    私が日一日と生き、医療を受けるということは、子供達或いはこれから生まれてくるであろう子供達の未来を削りとっているようなもの。
