FMM- Lanterns to the Otherside by tohdaryl FMM- Lanterns to the Otherside by tohdaryl
Inspired from the ending of Fatal Frame 3 and in memory of those who lost their lives in the 2011 tsunami in Sendai, Japan.

FYI:
Toro nagashi or “lantern offerings on the water, “Toro” means lantern, whilst “Nagashi” means to stream. Small paper lanterns containing light candles on a wooden or bamboo base are set adrift on calm water. Usually a message is written on the outside of the paper lantern. The purpose of this event is to send off ancestral spirits or the recently departed.

a red one for a relative that passed away during previous years and a white one for the recently deceased, a way to supposedly guide the spirits of the departed back to the other world.
