*Koi-nobori - a carp-shaped streamers.

"Jouzankei Onsen Stream Koi-nobori" will be held at Jouzankei Onsen. Jouzankei onsen is sometimes referred to as a hidden village of Sapporo.

About 400 Koi-nobori will be gracefully swimming above the onsen town for everyone to see.

You may be asking the question why are these koi-noboris on display?

In Japan, people celebrate the healthy growth of boys on the day called "Tango no sekku". This tradition began during the Edo-period by drawing a carp on papers and cloths for well-wishes.

"Tango no sekku" now falls on May 5th, and it is now a national holiday called "Kodomo no Hi" (Day of children). Koi-nobori at Jouzankei onsen is raised during the period of April 18th to May 17th to coincide with this holiday.
Please come by and see the dynamic Springtime event!
