A sky lantern also known as Kongming lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. In Asia and elsewhere around the world, sky lanterns have been traditionally made for centuries, to be launched for play or as part of long-established festivities. An annual sky lantern festival known as the Kamihinokinai Paper Balloon Festival is held in Semboku, Akita, on February 10 each year. Hundreds of very large lanterns, known as kamifūsen are flown for good luck in the coming year.
