French toast and Carp flags
A light but satisfiying breakfast of french toast with sliced bananas, blueberry yogurt, and coffee (served in a France-themed Rilakkuma mug, omg cute!) is a fabulous way to start the day.
Pair that with an afternoon of searching for Carp flags around the island and you’ve got a very happy girl and boy. Yet another Japanese holiday is around the corner: Kodomi no Hi, Children’s Day, on May 5th. Traditionally a holiday for boys (Hina Matsuri was for girls), families who have boys hang Koinobori outside their homes in celebration of the holiday. They are so colorful and fun, it’s hard to resist wanting to get closer! We found a little park with over twenty flags as well as sakura and a field of yellow flowers!
