We have decorated “Tanabata Kazari (a bamboo hanging strips)” on the entrance of our hotel.
“Tanabata(Star Festival)” is usually held on July 7.
However, in Takayama it is held on August 7th because of late coming of spring to Hida area.

[Tanabata (Star Festival)]
The Yearly Romantic Rendezvous of Two Stars. This event is a hybridf of Chinese lengends and customs with indigenous Japanese religious beliefs.
One of the stories:
A romantic story about the star Altair crossing the Milky Way to meet with the star Vega once a year on July 7.

Today, people write wishes on strips of paper of five different colors and hang them from bamboo. I’m sure your wish comes true.
