Carp Streamers or Windsocks
Today was the first time I spotted them floating overhead in the breeze.
It's a reminder, that Golden Week isn't too far away.
One source, I discovered says these originated with the samurai.
Some of them carried banners with carp painted on them when they went to fight.
They sure do brighten up the sky on a cloudy day.
These streamers will be flying throughout the rest of April and the month of May.

Love it :)
Muza-chan, It really surprised me, seeing these yesterday. I'd forgotten how close Golden Week has become !
