Tuesday, Teddy’s friend Ryan took us to Hamamatsu to see the Kite Festival.
One of the kites flying.
The sand dunes in Hamamatsu were beautiful!

After seeing the beach, we walked over to see the kites up close and personal. There were tons of festival food stalls, but they were all very busy.

I liked this kite, too!

I thought this kite with children’s handprints was very cute.
This group was preparing their kite for flight.
Many kites flying.
These people were pulling the kite string to make their kite fly around.

The kites fight with one another and with the trees, and occasionally they end up looking like this.
Well, that is all for the kite portion! The next post will be about other parts of the festival!
