Zama City Kite Festival

Nice Kite and Koinobori photos. I believe May is the best month for the big kite, because it is before rainy season and we have some good winds. Thank you for sharing!

Here are some pictures from the annual Zama City Kite Festival. Once a year, very large kites are flown near the Sagami River. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but the kites are very large.
