Cultural note from the author:
Every year, children in Japan look forward to the 5th of May, Children’s Day. The day signifies good health and wishes a good future for the children. It was originally held for boys only. However, in 1948, this day was registered as a national holiday and became a special day for both boys and girls. Therefore, the traditional celebrative ways introduced in this book mostly comprises of boy related themes. While some of the traditional practices have been simplified for the modern era, many families still practice these traditional methods.
