Interpretation[]

Koinobori Kimono is about the Dragon Boat Festival in the Cloud Empire, in early May after the sakuras have left to celebrate the arrival of summer. The festival's origins were intended to ward off evil, but evolved to become a fun festival.

It centers on a girl named Momoka (also referred to as Taoxiang or 桃香), who regularly attends the festival with her parents and her younger brother. She was separated from her family and got lost in the crowd. However, she met a girl who came over to her. They walked around together and saw a bird in the blue flame in the ocean. The blue flame is referred to as ghost fire and is a common sight during the festival. Momoka fell asleep on the girl's shoulder, and once she woke up she saw only a small cherry blossom satchel.

In her adulthood, Momoka attended the Dragon Boat Festival again, thinking of the girl from years ago. She wore a cape that was a birthday present from her mother along with a fletching-pattern kimono. At the end of the street, Momoka saw the girl again, and they spent the night walking together like old friends. She gave the girl a handbag in return for the cherry blossom bag that the girl had once given her.
