Children's Day is a Japanese national holiday in celebration of children's happiness, although the Success Childrens Day Wooden Kokeshi Doll is equally ideal as a good luck gift. Koi means Carp in Japanese, and this fish is a symbol of perseverance due to the fish’s tendency to swim upstream and resist the flow of water. Koi Carp also symbolise faithfulness and marriage in Japan. A design of carp swimming against rapids symbolises the Children’s Day Festival on May 5th. This is to inspire children to work hard in order to succeed. The Japanese kanji characters on the small wooden sign relate to a koi carp climbing a waterfall! If you wish to purchase a wooden display base for the Success Childrens Day Wooden Kokeshi Doll, we recommend the large size.

FREE Japanese style Gift-Wrapping!
In Japan the presentation of your gift is almost as important as the gift itself so in true Japanese style we can offer you a FREE gift-wrapping service! We wrap your gifts using a special Japanese textured paper to which we then affix either a small origami crane bird (which represents love and peace in Japan) or a mizuhiki (coloured wire) motif.
If you would like your order gift-wrapped please remember to select the Gift-Wrapping option from the drop down box on the product page when placing your order, if you do not select this option we will assume that you do not require gift-wrapping.
