Chase's Carp Kite

Special thanks to Grandpa Mark for sending Chase a lovely, Japanese carp kite (which symbolizes strength and courage).

In Japan, it is customary for every family to erect a bamboo pole in their garden (on Children's Day) and fly a carp kite for every member of the family. The oldest son has the largest kite (shocker).

I wonder how big Prince Hisahito's carp kite is - I'm thinking it might be a little bigger than Chase's carp kite.
