Ready to launch a giant kite at the Hamamatsu Kite Festival. The festival features giant kites flown by teams of people from the local area, and they try to cut the strings of rival group’s kites. It’s held on May 5 (Children’s Day), the last day of Golden Week and is well worth a visit if you’re looking for something to do during the Golden Week holidays.

Kite fighting is so cool; that’s one big kite there..
It’s held May 3 to 5 every year. Kite flying at the beach, yatai parade in the downtown area in the evening, and, in the local neighborhoods, celebrating the birth of males. For the full effect, do it all.
