Sagami Giant Kite Festival 相模の大凧まつり


za503-20190505-3248.jpg

Held annually on May 4 and 5 along the Sagami River from 10 am to 4 pm. They fly the giant kite a few times each day depending on the wind. For 2019, the giant kite celebrated the new Reiwa Era by having the kanji characters for Reiwa on the giant kite. Photos were taken on May 5, 2019 and May 5, 2005. Nearest train station is Sobudaishita Station on the JR Sagami Line (20-min. walk to the festival site). They have shuttle buses between the train station and festival site. Also see my old video at YouTube.
