Entry is FREE! This event is only for the current/ex-students of Hayakawa.
We at Hayakawa are delighted to invite one and all (especially the children) to the online Kodomo-no-hi (Japanese Childrens Day) celebration.
What is Kodomo-no-hi?
Kodomo-no-hi literally means Children’s Day. Although it may sound similar to the usual Children’s day that is recognized around the world, this day in Japan is considered rather celebrative and a joyous occasion for families with children. With historical significance, this holiday also marks the end of the Golden Week in Japan.
On that note, we at Hayakawa will be celebrating this holiday on the 5th of May, 2021; by learning about one of the traditions that has been passed down through generations in Japan. It is called, Koinobori. The fish named Koi (or Carp in english) are considered rather auspicious in Japan. During the celebration, the families hoist flags shaped like Koi that are hollowed inside and the way they flutter in the wind looks similar to the fish swimming. These traditions are really interesting and we are looking forward to tell you all about it during this cultural event!
What do you need to prepare?
During this event, we will be making some origami, and for which you will need the following:
Origami Paper or A4 sheet
Pen / marker
Please do participate along with the Children in your family, after all this day is celebrated for them!
During these tough times, we really hope that we could celebrate this auspicious day safe and sound with happiness and enjoyment.
Only for current/ex-students and their kids/siblings. Registration is must on or before 03rd May 2021. Details regarding the online celebration will be sent to the participants the day before the event i.e. 04-05-2021.
