Tanabata means the night of the seventh, also known as the Star festival. It is a legend about 2 stars separated by the Milky way, who are only allowed to see each other once a year. A common tradition is to write your wishes on a thin strip of paper and hang it together with other ornaments on a bamboo branch. If you like you can read more about it here.
Roppongi was selling delicious Japanese treats!!
In the photo booth by designer Fumiko Ito.
It was a lovely afternoon with plenty of wonderful crafts to be made, and snacks to be eaten. Plus I got to see my friend Masaaki again, and the winning of the raffle was the icing on the cake!
Have a wonderful day!
