colorful and wet!:)Happy nice festival...
I love balloons. Makes me feel like a kid :). Lovely colourful photo.
Wooo. I remember having this balloon when we visited Japan.
What a happy, colorful bunch of water balloons. Whee!Looks like the trick might be keeping the twisted paper string from getting wet. Maybe by bending the paper string at an angle right at the double hook?There is a kind of by-the-book explanation and demonstration here. We can see how they are used as yo yos at the end.The same thing but better close ups here.I never tried yo yo fishing. It looks like kids of all ages would enjoy that. I used to see these a lot at festivals. But talk about scoring at fishing!
Heh, heh... I like your colorful photo... but my kid's play does not include fishing for balloons. :-)
Fascinating and very colorful. I never knew of these before, they look like fun.
Paper hook? Are they kidding?
paper hooks?! that will take you forever! ^0^colorful balloons though.
They are so colorful and pretty!!!
That's cool, I love the cheerful colours!

Oh wow. Looks like a box of crayons exploded. Fun, fun, fun.
Colorful, beautiful and fun.
Colorful and fun!!! How nice of them to give you one anyway. :)
A splash of colors!
I'm not sure I can do this, but it must be funny!
Thank you everyone for the comments! It really is fun. The adults are just as serious about fishing these colorful balloons out of the water as the kids are ;DTall Gary, I need to work the technique you suggested for next year!
Be careful you don’t tear the paper string right where it joins the double wire hook.The next suggestion would be to position it carefully before you dunk it as briefly as possible. But once it gets wet it’s basically curtains. Still, if it is possible, folding or bending the string it an an angle sounds pretty good—so that one upper tip of a hook is below where the string joins, and then lower it slowly and gently just barely enough to hook a balloon elastic loop without getting the twisted-tissue string wet. Let us know how it works for you.Sometime before next matsuri season maybe you could practice trying to snag balloon substitutes in the bath with a re-bent paper clip (straighten it out; bend it in half in the middle; then bend each leg in half so the tip of each end is even with the 180º curved middle loop). Add twisted chirigami like in the YouTube video. For the balloon you could substitute something like an empty PET bottle of 爽健美茶 with a little water in it; a couple looped rubber bands at the neck. 頑張って。
