It was fisrt started to Honor the Remembrance of Hiroshima.

August 6th and 9th are the 73rd anniversaries of the world's first atomic bombings. In Japan and around the world, people gather in early August to float lanterns in remembrance of the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, all victims of war, and all who have gone before us.
