150 kites large and small adorning the sky

Up until the later half of the 20th century, kite flying was a popular New Year's Day children's pastime. The town of Kota holds a kite-flying competition every January. Participants compete to see which kites will fly for the longest time and which kites look best. The sky is adorned by a wide variety of kites from all over the country, some of them gigantic specimens exceeding 18 ㎡.

People with small and medium-sized kites can simply turn up an participate on the day. The festival has lots of other events, including a wadaiko drum performance and a rock-paper-scissors competition. You can also get something simple to eat at Yataimura (literally, "Stall Village").
