Framed Kite

1895

Kites were introduced to Japan during the Tang Dynasty. They became popular among the common folk, who regarded them as symbols of good fortune during the Edo period. It is said that kites were flown in the house of Tokugawa Ieyasu at the time of the birth of his second son, Yuki Hideyasu. This tradition was consequently preserved over the generation, whereby kites were decorated when boys were born into the family and flown on the first Dragon Boat Festival. This custom, known as hatsudako, symbolizes good health and fortune. This custom remains prevalent  among Kanto to Chubu regions, which includes Chiba Kazusa area.
