Peaceful ~Koi-nobori~

Oh, the carp streamer was up. It used to go up quite a bit when we were kids, but we don't see it much these days. If anything, it might be a lot of people who decorate the Kabuto. When I see them swimming in the blue sky like this, the carp streamers are so artistic and elegant. . . I realized again. I have a simple question about when it started, according to Mr. Wikipe, it seems to be from the middle of the Edo period. On the page is a carp streamer drawn by Hiroshige Utagawa. It seems that at that time there were only true carp. Today's carp is Nishikigoi. The design has a history.
