golden-week-in-japan

The golden week lasts from 1 April to 29 May each year. At this time the Japanese will have a week for leisure, entertainment, especially shopping. This is the most interesting time of the year in Japan. One special thing is that from the middle of April, the families will hang thousands of "koinobori - surpass fish" to welcome "Children's Day" which takes place on May 5 every year.
