Japanese Soul Food -Annual Event- : May - Hatsu-gatsuo, Kabuto-ni, Chimaki [ Japan Culture Project ]

One of the five seasonal festivals. Originally an unlucky day in China, due to the pair of odd numbers in its date, where irises and mugwort were used to ward off evil and venomous insects from homes.
The Edo Period saw the word for the iris "shoubu" become a homophone for "warlike spirit", so it became customary to decorate helmets, armor, warbanners and streamers with irises in hopes of success in battle. Originally meant to bring continued success of the children of samurai warriors, it has survived to this day as a boys' festival.
