Japanese Kite - Kagami Shishi

Japanese Kite - Battle of Uji


Japanese kites are often square or rectangular in shape with a colorful design of a samurai warrior or kabuki character emblazoned on the front. Japanese kites are traditionally flown in spring and at special kite-flying festivals. They were first for religious purposes and symbolize good luck, fertility, and prosperity. Kites were thought to scare away evil spirits.

Our kites are made from high-quality paper using traditions handed down over the centuries.

This beautiful Japanese kite features a picture by Teizo Hashimoto that depicts samurai warlords in the famous 13th century Battle of Uji River.
