Thinking of Carp Streamers and Warmer Weather

General Updates, JapanKristina PinoComment

Now that it's getting colder, cold enough that I'm using my kotatsu (a low table with a blanket and built-in space heater to keep your lower body warm), I'm longing for the warmer days of the year. The image above of colorful carp streamers was taken on Children's Day, which is May 5th in Japan. It is neither cold nor hot that time of the year, and I'd be pretty happy if it were like that outside right now. Alas, I must bundle up.
