It's still fairly common to find glass floats along the beaches in Japan. I've not PERSONALLY found any, but Twyla has given me one and the kids bought me a bunch for Mother's Day. You can find HUGE ones and I plan to go looking for some in the very near future.
The kids bought me this little basket and it holds 9 Japanese glass floats illuminated with battery-powered tea lights as we're not allowed to burn candles in our home.
NINE DAYS? SINGLE DIGIT! This is our guess.....even if it turns out this is day 11 or 13 or 18.....we'll be happy that for today we think it is NINE. LOL
