Went to a kite festival at Yotsukura beach in Mid-October. The kite-making was for kids only, but apparently we and a few elderly people looked so eager to try they made exceptions for us. We met a nice woman who worked for the event-planning group, and she saw to it that we were well fed. We saw some beautiful kites, some cute kites, some hilarious kites. We saw kites that we didn’t realize were kites. It was a great day, even though the rain closed it out early.
