Carp Kites.

These carp kites were photographed from a recent Baguio trip. We went to this place called Tam-Awan Village, and they have these hanging above what appears to be a wishing pond.

From what i've red, carp kites are commonly seen in Japan on Children's Day and are believed to represent strength and determination of spirit.

A filler for 04/15.

@deburahiru I've always been fascinated by them. This is my first time to see one up close.
