We interrput our look at Bishop Museum Animation to celebrate Boy’s Day.  This picture of of traditional Japanese carp taken at the Ohana Festival at the Japanese Cultural Center.  The carp represnt boys (or children) and are flown above the house one for each kid.  Originally Boy’s Day now is also Kodomo no Hi (Children’s Day).   It falls on 5/5 (girls day falls on 3/3).   Mochi (rice cakes willed with red beans) are traditionally served on this day.  Today is also in other cultures known as Cinco De Mayo so I guess I’ll have to have some mochi and also a burrito :).  Tomorrow we continue our look at animation.
