About
Goldfish lanterns are literally goldfish-shaped paper lanterns, and the art of making them by hand is a traditional folk craft which has been passed on for many generations since the Edo period. Now they have become popular and known as a symbol of Yanai City. The story that has been passed down is that 150 years ago at the end of Samurai era, prosperous merchants in Yanai made this unique lantern with paper, bamboo and dyes used for traditional local fabrics. In those days, the lantern was primarily used for welcoming someone, but now they are displayed throughout the city to entertain people. In summer, the whole city including “white-walled street” is filled with Goldfish lanterns. The Yanai Goldfish Lantern Festival is held every year on AUG 13th near Yanai Station with large Goldfish floats being carried down the street. This workshop gives you a unique experience of coloring, putting fins and tail on lanterns. Please take this great opportunity to make traditional folk craft.
