The Story of The Japanese Tanabata (Star Festival)

Tanabata, or the Star Festival, based on a folk tale, is a proud tradition in Japan. Many families (especially with children) celebrate every year. Boys and girls (as well as adults!) write wishes on strips of paper and tie them to a small bamboo tree. It is one of many traditions that makes Japan a special place to live!!

Below is the traditional song…many children sing this at their schools or events, commemorating the special occasion.
