Hand Painted Kite 
These kites are made of washi (Japanese handmade paper) and bamboo. Takamatsu city was famous for various kinds of kite and traditional toy. But there are very few craftsmen here recently, and then the kind of kites and toys is decreasing rapidly. Now there is no young successor and we are worried about the extinction of such folkcrafts in the near future.
