70314-0003 - Tango no Sekku


Inside Showa 1920s Unknown
Two boys celebrate Tango no Sekku festival. Until recently known as Boys’ Day or Flag Festival, it is held on May 5.

This card is from a series published by missionaries to raise funds. On the back it says, “Pray that our missionaries may convert the brave little Japanese and turn them to worship our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. While the Japanese men are strong and brave and win many battles, what are all these when their hearts are not clean?”
