I was told by my Japanese friend, that in Japan this is called Koi-nobori and flown to charm good luck for the growing boys specially during the month of May.

It is October now, therefore this koinobori is not intended anymore for the young boys . If it is for the finder, I wish this is good luck for me... lol

Koinobori

Families with boys hang colorful carp kites, called Koinobori, outside their houses - one for each boy, with the biggest representing the oldest boy at the top. The kites flutter in the wind and look beautiful, as you can see in the photo above! In Japanese culture, the carp (or koi) represents courage and perseverance, as the fish is known for its strength and determination as it swims against the current upstream. The carp kite symbolises each family's wish for their sons to grow up brave and strong.

May 5 is Children's Day in Japan. It's a national holiday during the Golden Week period. Until recently, May 5 was known as Boy's Day-- a day for all the little guys. Girls had their own holiday, too. For Boy's Day, it was and still is common to hang carp streamers and display samurai dolls or armor. The carp is a symbol of success, hence the significance of hanging the streamers. Displays of samurai dolls or miniature samurai weapons and armor is a time-honored tradition that symbolizes that boys will grow up to be strong warriors.

 

The picture of these two 'spawning' carp streamers was taken at Zōjō-ji Temple in Tokyo.
