Celebrating the Children's Day In Japan

by - 9:03 PM

In Japan, May 5 is holiday dedicated entirely for Children, as they are our most precious treasure and a great source of happiness and pride. Families take the time to celebrate the joys of childhood and family life.

It's also a day to give importance to the boys since we have  "Girl's day" on every 3rd day of March. Families wish for the good health and future success of their sons by hanging up carp streamers and displaying samurai dolls, in which symbolize strength, power and success in life. I might share more about this next year as my nephew Ryukun will be turning 5.

To celebrate the Children's day, we had a BBQ party in the riverside near our place despite of the cold weather we had during that day. It was also an advance celebration for Ryukun's birthday.

The bbq lunch party begins...

  6. Here in the Philippines we actually have Children's Month every October, but not many people know about or really celebrate it. I think it's wonderful that it's an actual holiday in Japan so people will always remember what a treasure children really are. :)

  15. Anzu's outfit is so cute!

    Sarap ng barbeque! How I wish that the river near our place is as refreshing as the river there in Japan. Japanese people have this cute little holidays. How come we don't have that here in the Philippines. I don't think we have a day that celebrates our kids. Meron ba?

  16. Hi, Bams! How's Japan now? It looks like, they have already recovered from the huge earthquake and tsunami disaster. You have a very cute family! You and your daughter just look like sisters together! God bless! =)

  17. Ang daya! I don't think the Philippines has a Children's Day, nor a Boy's or Girl's Day. I strongly suggest that there be a worldwide holiday commemorating children and the importance and joy they bring to the world.

    Now my next question is...how do I start? I should hold a dialog with my congressman. Naks! :D
