Tanabata Festival

Last weekend, my town held its annual Tanabata Festival from Thursday to Sunday.  I attended on Sunday.  There were many colorful paper decorations lining the streets, wishes hung from bamboo branches, festival food was available in abundance (I did eat a soft ice cream while I was there), and there were many people taking it all in. It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

  2. Beautiful, colourful and great fun. Olympic mood and lots of well known characters, like Chibi Maruko (last picture) and the rakugo Shoten members (first picture).
    Are the pom-poms made of coloured tissue paper?
