Tokyo Tower 333 Koinobori

The iconic Tokyo landmark’s take on the Children’s Day tradition sees hundreds of koi carp banners flying in front on the main entrance. Children’s Day is celebrated on May 5 each year, with colorful fish flags (koinobori) seen flapping outside many family homes and businesses in celebration. Tokyo Tower measures 333m tall and thus displays 333 koi banners for around one month between April and May. A giant 6m sanma (saury) fish is also hidden lurking amongst the koi, so see if you can spot him! Along with the tower, the 333 koinobori will be illuminated daily between 5pm and 11pm.
