The Club celebrates Japan’s Boys’ Day holiday, or Children’s Day as it is now called, with a traditional samurai suit of armor and colorful carp streamer display.
The May 5 national holiday, which was known as the Feast of Banners until 1948, was originally a time for families to honor their male offspring with symbols of vitality and strength.
The samurai display in the first-floor Family Lobby is provided by Yoshitoku, a Tokyo-based doll company established in the early 18th century, which also supplies the ornate Girls’ Day display earlier in the year.
Families with boys often display a samurai figure or kabuto helmet at home and hang a carp streamer outside during this period.
With Tokyo's state of emergency no longer in effect, the Club is currently preparing to reopen select venues and services from June 1.
