What is Japanese “Kite-flying”?

Kite-flying is known as one of the games played during Japan’s New Year. Traditional Japanese kites are made of a bamboo frame and Japanese paper “Washi”. There are variety of patterns and shapes, and are varied in each local.


Fly the kite as high as possible!

Kite-flying has a wish to spend the year lively by playing kite-flying, and deliver the wish to the heaven high in the sky. To deliver your wish, try to fly your kite as high as possible!

We did fly the kite high in the sky with a hope of our Tadaima Japan’s big development!

We hope your continued support on us this year!
