  • July 7 is the star festival in Japan. We call it 七夕(tanabata). 七夕 is the day 織姫(Orihime - vega) and 彦星(Hikoboshi - Altair) meets once a year. We wrote our own wishes on 短冊(Tanzaku - a stripe of paper) and tie it up to a bamboo.

    What do you write on 短冊 this summer? If you have something to write, I can understand you because I'm now prayer. You pray, I pray.
