Tokyo Tower 333 Koinobori

The 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, and colorful fish flags can be seeing flapping outside many family homes and businesses in celebration. Tokyo Tower measures 333m tall and thus displays 333 koi banners for one month between April and May. There is also a giant 6m sanma (saury) fish lurking amongst the koi, so see if you can spot him! Along with the Tower, the 333 Koinobori will be illuminated between 5pm and 11pm daily.
