The Japanese have a history of decorating kites with magnificent images of gods, warriors, actors and creatures. In fact, the rectangular shape of the Japanese Kakudako kite is particularly suited to being a canvas for art. Inspired by this tradition, the compact Kakudako Mini Kite features illustrations and is easy to assemble, easy to fly, and a pleasure to watch soar aloft.
