Bath with Shobu (Iris)

5th May is Children’s Day/Boys Day.

We have a customs to wish good health by taking a bath with Iris.

We pronounce Iris, Shobu.

The same pronunciation/sound with “game/battle”.

We wish boys to be strong and win a game/battle by taking a bath with Iris/Shobu.

Though I’m a woman, I don’t mind a good luck.


Currently living in Tokyo. I would love to share feelings, food, places and things that I do!!
