HomeCulture七夕-Star Festival TANABATA

TANABATA is an event on the night of 7th July related to the stars. It is based on the legend that Hikoboshi (Cow herder) and Orihime (Weaving Princess), two lovers, would be allowed to see each other across the Milky Way only once a year ! Their wishes come true tonight.

Before ”TANABATA” 7th July, we write our wishes on colorful paper strips and hang them on bamboo leaves.

These are photos of Tanabata Festival at Zojoji.
