In Japan, 5 May is Children's Day and is a festival for boys. 5 May is one of Japanese national holidays, is also traditionally called Tango no Sekku. Girls's day is 3 March, called Hina Maturi. On Children's Day, families celebrate the healthy growth and happiness of children. And families with boys fly huge carp-shaped streamers (Koinobori) outside the house and display dolls of famous warriors and other heroes inside. The carp was chosen because it symbolizes strength and success; according to a Chinese legend, a carp swam upstream to become a dragon.

Hello,

Are you sure the figure is 55 inches? I'm currently considering bidding on one on an auction site but if it's that much I probably can't do shipping...

thanks!

When I posted this article, Heartland had a website. In Dec of 2008, they had merger under TakaraTomy Arts. Takara Tomy ARTS does not maintain the previous released lines of Heartland at the moment unfortunately.
