It had been a couple of years since I went to check out the koinobori in Ikeda. In that amount of time, they cleaned up the river and added more rocks.
The koinobori display this year is larger than before, there are two lines of fish spanning the river, as well as large bamboo poles with some koinobori flying from them along the banks.
The weather has been sunny but there is that awful dust cloud from China that is polluting the skies during this time of year.
I also shot a short video which you may be interested in seeing of the koinobori, here.
It's Friday here, and the start of Golden Week, hope you have a great weekend.
