Tokyo Sights

Kite Museum (Tako no Hakubutsukan)

Updated 08/19/2013

Fodor's Review

Kite flying is an old tradition in Japan. The collection here includes examples of every shape and variety from all over the country, hand-painted in brilliant colors with figures of birds, geometric patterns, and motifs from Chinese and Japanese mythology. You can call ahead to arrange a kite-making workshop (in Japanese) for groups of children.
