It's festival season in Japan! We got here the end of August last year, so we barely missed all these cool festivals. This weekend was the Tanabata festival just outside the gate here in Misawa.
Part of the modern day customs for Tanabata is writing wishes on paper and hanging them from bamboo...I think that's what this is. The other part is all the colorful streamers, we went at night to see everything lit up!
Okay, so I may have taken pictures of every single set of streamers along the way but I wasn't slowing anyone down. My family was busy filling up on snow cones and cotton candy and yakisoba. We had a great weekend, and next weekend?! Nebuta festival!!!
