Tucked away in a building at Nihonbashi, Tokyo, the Kite Museum is a treasure trove of historical kites. Just like the mad scientist’s lab, the kite museum resembles a kite fanatic’s playhouse with kites of all shapes and colours hanging and drape in every possible (and maybe impossible) corner. There is a scent of 'age' in this small museum, and as I explored and learned about kites of different eras, I cannot help wondering about the kite flyers who once flew these kites and their kite-flying stories. For a nominal entrance fee of ¥200, the Tokyo Kite Museum makes a great visit for those who like kites, history and culture.
Because there’re so much more. Be it places, people or the most trivial of matters, there are much more if only one cares to explore further. I would love to hear your story and share some good ones with you. Come travel with me. Be inspired.
