79″ Koinobori Koi Fish Wind Sock
Our nylon 79″ Koinobori Koi Fish Wind Socks are delightful garden ornaments and make a colorful wall display in the home and children’s rooms. In Japan, Koi Streamers are traditionally flown on Children’s Day on May 5th. However, the largest black carp streamer represents the Father with the red representing the Mother. Finally, the flying koi symbolizes courage and ambition recognizing a tale of a koi. Then the koi swam all the way to heaven to become a dragon.
I was given a gift of my aunt’s old 3 piece Koinobori after it became too crowded to fly in Tokyo. We hung them for many years in our 2 story foyer but they faded and we’ve been looking for replacements but found them extremely expensive to purchase when we were in Japan in November. We were thrilled to find these quality koi windsocks and purchased 3 sizes.
