This lark made from strong paper had a tail that gave a sound when spinning around.
It was placed in the fields to prevent insects from harming the vegetables.
The body of the animal is black with white stripes.
The body is stabilized by a bamboo skewer.

It is sold on the festival days of the famous
temple Jakkooin 寂光院 Jako-In.

In former times, farmers would buy 10 or 20 to place in the rice paddies.
The swallow was seen as a messenger of the deity of the rice fields.
