Koi no bori

Koi no bori at Akihei

We had lunch at our favorite Japanese restaurant, Akihei on May 1. Our friend Kennis is the owner with her husband's family. The food is wonderful. She explained to us about the
Koi no bori for children's day. Each koi is symbolic of a member of the family. This is the one that was hanging in front of their restaurant and home. The top one is striped in color. I plan to do one in watercolor since the colors are so amazing.
