Sode Tako (Kimono Kite)
- Besides making some of the world's largest kites the
Japanese have had for hundreds of years a fascination with miniature kites.
One of the pastimes of the retired Samurai Warriors was to use straw and tissue paper
to make small kites that would fly over the rising air from the hot coals of their cooking stoves.
Yakko-Tako (14cm x 13cm) is one of the
most popular kite in Japan.
It is very difficult to fly without tails, so children attach 2-4m
length of tails made by cut newspaper or other tape and
"Yakko" means 'a servant' in ancient era.
Inflatable Moon Cake specially made for this
exhibition. It is kept inflated by
a electric blower which provided a continuous source of air.
This is what my 28mm lens cound capture.
