Childrens Day

May 5th is Childrens Day in Japan. Families with boys celebrate this day by displaying KOINOBORI (carp streamers) outside.
But grandma displays KOINOBORI inside like this...
And they are not food...
Oh, we eat these sweets, BEKO MOCHI and KASHIWA MOCHI, for the celebration of Childrens Day.

Have some with tea!
