A Tanabata festival in Hiratsuka. It is one of the biggest around Kanagawa area.
7 July 2012
I’ve been to Kanagawa for the biggest tanabata matsuri in Kanto area that is Hiratsuka Tanabata.
It’s some kind like temple festival in my home country as well that I can see so many shops, children on smiling face and also a bunch of happy couples in yukata 😀
Tanabata originated from Qixi festival by China and the story is about once a year that princess Ori and Hikoboshi can meet each other because they are obstructed by the milky way. And that day is every 7 of July in every year.
It sounds sweet to me 😀
