    Banners fly in Honolulu to mark Tango-no-Sekku - Japanese Boys' Day Festival.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'HIGH FLYING!'

    Honolulu, Hawaii.

    Several shots of flags and fish-shaped kites flying from poles in Honolulu to mark Tango-no-Sekku - the Japanese Boys' Day Festival. The feast day celebrates all boys that have been born that year and the banners portray legendary heroes to encourage boys to be brave and noble.

    A little Hawaiian boy sits with a kite in his hand. Japanese boys and men pose with ornate and elaborate kites. Flying kites is the custom on this day but we don't see them in flight.
