Tanabata is an event related to the stars in Japan.🇯🇵
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.
Hikoboshi and Orihime were husband and wife.👨🏻👩🏻
They were so deeply in love with each other that they ended up neglecting their duties.
As punishment, they were separated and only allowed to meet one another once a year.😢
On the night of 7th July of every year, people write their wishes on colorful paper strips and hang them on bamboo leaves.🎋
If it rains on Tanabata night, the only chance when Hikoboshi and Orihime can meet in a year, the heavenly river will be flooded with rainwater. Both lovers will become unable to meet each other.
If Hikoboshi and Orihime are able to meet each other in that year without problems, the wish you had written on the paper strip will come true.🌠
In every region of Japan, there will be Tanabata festivals held a day before July 7th, and a day afterward.👘
At Tanabata festival, there will be rows of stalls just like what you can see in typical temple festivals. Parades and performances will also be held at the venue.🏮⛩
