It’s been a bit busy lately with ALT meetings, Halloween events, and getting sick between those two things, so here’s a short post to enliven my blog a little and brighten your day!
At the Childcare Center (保育センター) in Waki where I helped out with a Halloween party this October, the ladies who work in the office had at least three or four strings (chains?) of aluminum can lanterns hanging up. They’re actually beer cans, haha. I was super impressed, and they told me a man in Waki makes these as a hobby, and let me choose one to take home!
Not the best pictures because it’s hanging in my apartment, but it’s five lanterns long and looks like this:
Each lantern has a wire “circle” around it, and each can-lanterns spins freely on its axis if you push the slitted part with your finger.
Later on, when my friend and I were trick-or-treating in Waki, we passed a house that had can lanterns hanging, so maybe that’s where the guy lives who makes these. I don’t have a particularly amazing place in my apartment to hang my lanterns right now, so I’m just going to hold onto them and wait for either inspiration, or my next apartment :)
