The Japanese have a custom of holding a variety of events praying for the healthy growth of boys on the day of “Tango-no-sekku.” This is on May 5 and is a national holiday called “Children’s Day.” In a few regions, it is celebrated on June 5th, following the old lunar calendar.
The kakejiku (hanging scroll) of a musha (armoured warrior) painting is often displayed in a tokonoma (alcove) on the day. This is because parents and grandparents hope that the male child will be strong like a musha.
This is a kakejiku with a painting of a musha by Nakayama Jin. The depictions of splendid armour, a lively horse, and magnificent Mt. Fuji are designed to make the musha appear stronger to the viewer. This is a work which we would really like to display on the day of Tango-no-sekku.
