Description

Japanese traditional paper balloon in the shape of a fugu. Fugu is a very delicate dish that you can enjoy in Japan during winter time. The fish is cooked in many different ways : sashimi, fried, in hotpot. Apart from its subtle taste Fugu is also known for being highly poisonous and the smallest mistake in the preparation could kill you!

Isono Kamifusen is a traditional Japanese paper balloon maker. It has been located in Izumozaki City, in Niigata Prefecture, since 1919. Izumozaki is a coastal town that flourished as a fishing port in the Sea of ​​Japan and as a trading center with Sado Island. The founder of the company Isono developed the production of paper balloons as a winter job, when fishing was impossible.
Paper balloons were valued as children’s toys throughout the Taisho (1912-1926) and Showa (1926-1989) eras. Toys for children have changed a lot lately, but paper balloons remain popular as simple and nostalgic toys. We recommend to hang them with a string and tape from the ceiling close to a window where they can swing with the breeze.
