This previous summer season, we celebrated my daughter’s second birthday with decor impressed by Kodomo no hello (Kids’s Day) in Japan. Annually on Might 5, landscapes throughout Japan are adorned with large strands of colourful koinobori, the carp-shaped windsocks, and the vacation is well known with kite-flying, mochi, and different actions. We’ve all the time thought it was the sweetest vacation—celebrating the spirit of the kid—so once we adopted the decor for her get together, I used to be on a mission in researching koinobori. This lead me to occur upon Ohayo, a pint-sized store in Copenhagen importing Japanese ceramics, classic textiles, and painted by hand washi paper koinobori.

Ohayo is based by three pals—Mika, Benjamin, and Niklas—who met whereas finding out design for a semester at Osaka Seikei College in 2012. They had been residing in buildings going through each other, the story has it, that every morning Benjamin would lean out of his window and scream “Mika! Ohayooo!!” The thought for the shop started then, and was realized in 2017 after they opened their storefront close to Gammel Strand in central Copenhagen. Here’s a look inside.
