Ever wondered what 100,000 solar-powered LED spheres floating down a river look like?
As part of the Tokyo Hotaru Festival, held in May, 100,000 blue glowing spheres were floated down the river, lighting it as they passed. It was designed to be reminiscent of a swarm of fireflies and to capture the way nature intended to brighten up our surroundings.
Front row tickets were a sell out and the spheres were eventually caught downstream in giant nets, ensuring no pollution.
What a sight.
