From Boing Boing pal Ryan Ozawa, a gorgeous video of the 16th annual Shinnyo-En Tōrō Nagashi, or lantern floating ceremony, at Magic Island in the waters off Honolulu, Hawaii.


"My daughter Katie was resolute in entering a remembrance for her grandfather, Ed, and having secured a lantern, we were able to honor loved ones for family, friends, and coworkers as well," Ryan says.
