Tanabata Season

TanabataProbably you see a lot of these in Japan now.

These are for Tanabata – the Star Festival.

It’s based on a Chinese story.

One couple is separated by Milky Way and they are allowed to meet only once a year on July 7th.

We observe the day as star festival.

Usually we write our wish on a slip of paper and hang it on a bamboo branch.

There are kept for a while and burn at the end of the festival.

So if you are offered to write a wish, please go for it.
