About

“Tanabata”, Japan’s traditional “Star” festival
Tanabata tradition started as a ritual of writing a memory of home and nostalgia on 5 colored papers and decorating them on a bamboo tree.   It is believed that the ritual started when a bride from Kyoto came to Akita and became a member of Satake Minami family of feudal domain of Akita.  Hundreds of Ukiyoe (Japanese woodblock prints) and drawings of beautiful women brighten up the dark sky of the night.
