About the “Inori-Hoshi®” (いのり星®)
From ancient eras throughout time, mankind made a custom of wishing to stars in the sky. From this tradition the “Inori-Hoshi®” (Wish Star) ball was born, in order to provide a speck of light onto which wishes could be poured. These are ecological, recyclable, high-tech floating spheres, equipped with a high-intensity blue LED, solar cell and rechargeable battery. When launched on water, a sensor activates them making them to lit up. “Inori-Hoshi®” (いのり星®) is a trademark and patent of K.K. Landmark Japan.
