Kodomo no hi or Japanese Children's Day is a festival originally for boys ("tango no sekku") but which has been renamed for both sexes and is held on the 5th day of the 5th month.    On this day families with newborn sons fly koinobori, beautiful multi-colored carp windsocks  outside of homes to wish their sons a good future. Otoko means "boy" and sekku means "festival".  The festival originated in China and later became  associated with May rice planting in Japan.
