Tanabata (July 7)

Hello, I'm Asuka from Yokoya Farm.

Yester day is Tanabata (Festival of the Weaver) in Japan. (July 7)

Yesterday's Google search screen


My daugter writed her wishes on colorful paper strips and hang them on bamboo leaves.

Tanabata is an event related to the stars.

It is based on the legend that only once a year, Hikoboshi (Cow herder) and Orihime (Weaving Princess), two lovers, would be allowed to meet each other at the shores of the heavenly river.

The moment would take place on the night of July 7th in the lunisolar calendar.

Not many households hung out Tanzaku on bamboo branches any more.

Even now, however, every nursery school, kindergarden, and elementary school classroom has real sprig of damboo on which to tai tanzaku inscribed with childlen wishes.

My daughter's wish is "She wants to be Anpanman". Wow.
