Goldfish lanterns are unique handicrafts of Yanai, Yamaguchi. The idea for the lanterns is said to originate with an Edo Period merchant who was inspired by the Nebuta ornaments of Aomori. He used traditional "yanaijima" to create goldfish lanterns upon returning to Yanai.This lantern gradually became a local feature. Today, Yanai organizes a goldfish lantern festival in August every year, where more than 4,000 goldfish lanterns preserved from the Edo period are hung in the Town of white wall. Yamaguchi is also the hometown of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
