Carp Streamers with Cherry Blossoms

Carp fluttering in the wind over a river in Fukui

In early April I went to Sabae City in Fukui to see carp streamers 'swimming' over a small river lined with pretty cherry blossoms and daffodils. A friend of mine told me about the small river across which 15 rows of 7 carp streamers are set up to celebrate the Boy's Day on May 5th. It is quite a sight to see these streamers and cherry trees together. The river is located in amid green fields surrounded by mountains and everything seemed so idyllic that I thought I was lost in a fairy tale. These carp streamers will be there until around May 8th. Don't miss seeing them if you happen to be in the neighborhood!
