Tokyo: Kite Museum

Kites are cool. Aerial illustrations. In some cases, they're practically aerial puppets (telling rather minimalist stories, mind you). So when I read in my Lonely Planet there was a Kite Museum in Tokyo, it became a quest to find it.

Unfortunately, I spent more time taking trains and locating it than I did inside it, because it's very very small. Not quite two rooms, jam-packed from floor to ceiling like someone's attic with kites.

Perhaps an English-speaking guide would have made it more enjoyable, or a less claustrophobia-inducing layout. So I wouldn't recommend going out of your way like I did, but if you happen to be in the right part of Tokyo and have time, check it out.
