It's a Bird, It's a Plane...
Nope, it's a Kite!
And a very well made one, too. I'm not sure if they are some kind of group, but in the afternoon on the weekends, there are a number of people flying handmade kites at the Koku Koen.
They told me that they make it from thin wood and 'Washi,' a type of Japanese paper. They also paint the kites, too.
A lot of people sitting around on the grass watch as the kites fly over head. This little girl in the photo below was the most curious, closing in on the old man as he manned his kite.
Happy weekend everyone!
