Welcome to Kite Museum

Kite Museum

This fascinating museum is an absolute must for any child who loves kites, or any adult who has ever flown a kite. The Kite Museum exhibits mainly traditional style Japanese kites, 'Edo Nishiki-E Dako' as well as other kites from around Asia. Kites are made from bamboo and a Japanese handmade paper called 'washi' which is surprisingly strong. Featuring over 3,000 kites, this museum is a must for all kite enthusiasts.

Japanese is the official language. Most Japanese people will have studied English at school, but few can speak it well or understand what is said to them.

The currency is the Japanese Yen (JPY), which is equal to 100 sen. Major credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and stores, but most Japanese operate with cash. Cash and travellers cheques can be exchanged in banks, post offices and currency exchange bureaux. Banks are usually open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm. Travellers cheques offer the best exchange rate and are best taken in US dollars.
