Japanese Kite-Flying on New Year's Day

Schoolchildren in Japan often make kites during the winter holidays and fly them on New Year's Day. T made one this year. He designed, built, and flew it himself. It's made of paper and bamboo sticks. The first flight ended with the kite in a tree. After patching it up, he went back and flew it well in the park, as well as could be expected on a windless day.
