Hi! This is Natsuko from Sakura Hotel Hatagaya.
On 7tn July, we held “Tanabata Festival Event” at Sakura Cafe Hatagaya.
What is Tanabata?
Tanabata festival is the Japanese traditional event in July and it related to the stars.
It is based on the legend that only once a year, Hikoboshi and Orihime, two lovers, would be allowed to meet each other at the shores of the Milky Way, heavenly river. The moment would take place on the night of July 7th.
And we believe if we write a wish on the strip of paper and display it on bamboo on July 7th, a wish will be true.
On this event, we made ” sasakazari”.
The guests wrote their dreams on these papers “sasakazari” and displayed it.
