Kite lovers recently flew what they called the largest kite in the world at Harumi Pier in Tokyo’s Chuo-ku. Great photo.
Masaaki Modegi, president of the Japan Kite Association, ordered a New Zealand designer to make the 25-meter by 40-meter kite, which was completed in November last year.
With about 15,000 visitors watching, the 250-kilogram kite was flown under a mild breeze.
Organizers made desperate efforts to fly the kite at an altitude of 30 meters.
