Comment Images depict Susanno, the dragon slayer, and the Yamata no Orochi, the dragon. In the myth, Susanoo happens upon an old couple and their beautiful daughter. They're all crying because the girl is about to be eaten by a giant dragon named Yamato no Orochi. Susanoo says that he'll fight the serpent if he can marry the beautiful Kushi-inada-hime. The girl's parents agree, and with a good sword and a bit of trickery, Susanoo kills the monster and saves the girl. Wikipedia

Boy's Day was originally called Tango no Sekku, celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th moon of the Chinese calendar.
