Back in the Edo days, kites were considered lucky charms that help ward off fires, which were rampant at that time. Since then, a Kite Market, where kites are displayed and sold, has been held annually on the Days of the Horse in February.
For 2023, that is February 5 and 17.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
