There are 300 or so kites in this small but fascinating museum, located above the restaurant Taimeiken, including brilliantly painted ones based on folk characters, woodblock prints or samurai armour. None are particularly old (they’re made of paper, after all), but they’re amazing to admire nonetheless. Ask for an English booklet at reception.
