Tanabata ( meaning “Evening of the seventh”) is a Japanese star festival, originating from the Chinese Qixi Festival. It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. The date of Tanabata varies by region of the country, but the first festivities begin on July 7 of the Gregorian calendar. The celebration is held at various days between July and August.


This is our Tanabata bamboo. Although I am Japanese, I hadn’t celebrated Tanabata for more than 15 years. Whenever I see this picture, I feel so happy because there are full of wishes.

Beside the Tanabata bamboo, we had Takoyaki , Japanese food, from the Kansai Region.

I hope everybody had fun!
