Aichi | Tahara-shi

The custom of “Hatsudako” (first kite), which is hoisted to pray for the birth of a first son and for the child’s safety at the Tango no Sekku festival, and the “Kenkadako” (kite fight) in which people try to cut the strings of each other’s kites in the sky, have been passed down through the generations. At the “Kenkadako Battle” held on the second day (Sunday), people affix glass powder on the strings of their own kites, manipulate Tahara's unique oblong kites and cut the strings of each other’s kites while flying them. Sounding a loud sound called “Unari,” they fight a fierce battle in the sky.
