This exquisitely crafted kite, hand-painted using dyes, features a bold, colorful motif of a "yakko," a foot-servant during the days of swashbuckling samurai. It's ideal for flying in gentle breezes, or makes for a highly decorative addition to any interior decor. HAND MADE IN JAPAN

 

The veteran kitemaker who crafts this work of art is Tetsuya Kishida.

We are deeply saddened to announce that Tetsuya Kishida passed away on August 20, 2019.


His love and passion for creating and flying the Edo kites were unmeasurable. We were inspired by his artwork and our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him.
