「たなばた祭り」をイメージして制作しました。

I created this with the image of the “Tanabata Festival” in mind.

July 7’th is Tanabata festival in Japan.

Tanabata is the legend story about Orihime and Hikoboshi.The legend of Orihime and Hikoboshi is based on China. They didn’t work at all because they were crazy about each other.The king mad at them and separated
a pair of lovers by the milky way.They were allowed to see only on July 7 th.Tanabata means to celebrate their once a year reunion.If it rains on the day,they won’t be able to meet because of a flood of the milky way.

(cf.)

Tanabata is a Japanese festival celebrated on July 7th every year. We write each wish on a strip of paper. The strips of paper called Tanzaku.They hang their tanzaku on bamboo branches.Its believed that your wish will come true if you write it on Tanzaku.
