Some koinobori (carp banners) have already been put up in preparation for Children's Day on May 5. Children's Day is actually a celebration for young boys (girls have their day, the Dolls Festival, in March). The koinobori are part of an old Chinese legend about carp which jump up a waterfall in order to become dragons, so they're associated with strength and determination.
