100,000 LED Spheres Floating Down a River in Japan

At last weekend's Tokyo Hotaru festival, 100,000 little balls with LEDs inside floated down the Sumida River. From a distance, they look like a blur on the river. Close up, they look like fireflies dancing on the surface of the water. You can view more pictures at the link.

Who gets to clean all of this up 100,000 plastic spheres before they get to the sea and become just one more part of the pacific gyre?
