The small stand next to Kaneki and Hide is the Koinobori, meaning ‘carp streamer’ to celebrate Children’s Day in Japan.
These wind socks are made by drawing carp patterns on paper, cloth or
other nonwoven fabric. They are then allowed to flutter in the wind.
The paper hat Rize put on Kaneki’s head is an origami of a Kabuto, a helm worn by Japanese samurais.
