|This national holiday was
established in 1948, as a day on which to esteem the personalities
of children and plan for their happiness. It is on this day that
the Japanese equivalent of the Dragon Boat Festival (Tango no
sekku) is held. On this day, families who have a boy in their home
may fly koi streamers and decorate their homes with armor or
samurai dolls. Children's Day marks the end of Golden Week.
