Tanabata!

Hi everyone,

Blogging after one month again. I have many news about last month but before that I would like to tell you about today,   July 7th, Tanabata day(evening) in Japan !

Tanabata is a festival that is celebrated every year on July 7 . When this time of year comes around, people write their wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo trees, along with decorations. 

Tanabata, also known as the “star festival”, according to a Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega, which are usually separated from each other by the milky way, are able to meet. 

Each city or place has their own decoration for Tanabata. Here I had taken some photos from Hachimangu shrine, in Kamakura city. 

And here is our small bamboo 

“Waoo,Violet,

What is this tree?i love the sound of the leaves! Can I bite them?”

No, Malus,

You just make a wish and I will decorate it on the tree!๐Ÿ˜

And here our little Tanabata bamboo tree with many wishes……

And a quick sketch of that!


My first wish on the top of the tree is  “World Peace,ุตู„ุญ ุฏุฑ ุฏู†ูŠุงุŒไธ–็•Œๅนณๅ’Œ ” 

๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸNow, you my dear friend, make a wish or wishes tonight and may all your wishes come true!โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ
