Stalls are an essential ingredient for Japanese festivals. Various kinds of stalls catch your heart as you wander into the stall street of a festival. The goldfish scooping stall is one of them. You scoop goldfish with a scooper and take the fish home as a prize. The young and old savor the traditional game at a festival.

I am taking care of the fish my five-year-old nephew got at a summer festival while traveling in Osaka with his family. Fish from these stalls usually don't last long after you take them home. As a kid, however, I remember this one fish I got at a stall survived 3 years. I hope my nephew's ones lead long lives.

    The scooper consists of a paper and a plastic frame. It is designed to break easily when it gets wet. You can take fish as much as you want with a scooper. Even if your scooper breaks, you can continue to scoop with it if possible. Actually good players scoop with a broken one till the paper is completely gone. I think this can be called a game. As you improve your skills, you get more prize. It's not very easy to take care of fish, but they live long if you take care properly. :)

    I never really understood this stall. Is this a game and is there a limit to catching them? I'm not that good in terms of caring for fishes in general.
