Overview
More
The Hamamatsu Festival, also called the "Kite Festival," is held to coincide with Boy's Day (May 5). This custom of launching the first kite of the festival traces its roots to the Edo period. A must-see event is a battle of massive kites. Each municipality launches one with its own crest, and the goal is to maneuver it into other kites and sever their cords. The result is a spectacular performance. Lofted high on the wind, the kites battle it out high in the sky, and spectators go wild. In the evening, illuminated shrines make the rounds.
