Tako Age will fly their giant Hamamatsu kites in the Berkeley Kite Festival.
HEART 心 (Kokoro)
IATA (Tako Age) is a Japanese traditional kite flying group that plans to construct giant kites based on the theme HEART (or Kokoro) and then fly them in the blue skies of Berkeley, California. These kites will symbolize their continued support of Japan’s Northeast areas affected by the 2011 earthquake.
The 29th Berkeley Kite Festival will be held on July 26th and 27th, 2014 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. They welcome any sponsors to join in this year’s festival by having HEART kites made for them.
