Overview
More
This festival is held every year on May 3rd and 5th along the banks of the Edo River. The highlights of the festival are the "100 Tatami-mat Kites," which, at 15m tall by 11m wide and weighing approximately 800kg, are said to be the largest kites in Japan. It takes around three months to construct each kite out of bamboo and 1,500 pieces of Japanese washi paper. The festival day begins with a good-luck ceremony for the children who will celebrate their first annual festival that year, after which over one hundred participants will split into two groups and each raise one of the giant kites. A variety of smaller kites will be flown nearby, adorning the spring sky with brilliant colors.
