Happy Boys/Children's Day! (Tango no sekku 端午の節句)
A traditional Japan holiday that used to focus on boys only but later on broadened to include girls as well; 5th May is a special day spent to celebrate and wish for children to grow up healthy and prosperous!
Families would raise koinobori - carp-shaped windsocks to symbolise strength and vitality.
This crowd pleaser is stuffed with cheese in the middle and cooked using a special sear + steam method - resulting in super plump and juicy hamburg steaks!
