Origami kabuto/samurai helmet

05 May

Ilyere here! Did you know that May 5 is Children’s Day (こどもの日 Kodomo no Hi) in Japan? This is a national holiday during Golden Week to celebrate children and wish them happiness. Children fold kabuto (samurai helmets) and place them on Kintarou dolls, and families raise koinobori (carp streamer) flags together. The kabuto on the Kintarou is meant to represent a strong and healthy boy. (Incidentally, Children’s Day used to be Boys’ Day, hence the tradition and its meaning.)
