I wasn’t able to attend either tanabata and hanabi parties this year (unfortunately) but that didn’t stop me from wearing yukata!
Have you ever heard of tanabata or star festival in Japan? It is held every evening of the seventh of July! It’s celebration for the two lovers that could only meet once a year according to the old Chinese story. Isn’t that romantic? It reminds me of someone I know. Anyway, my mom and my sister both attended the festival last month and they got to wear yukata! Jealous!
There was also hanabi (fireworks) festival that I missed! It made me reminisce last year’s… When we were able to join three hanami parties! However.. because of the tragedy last March, my city decided to postpone this year’s celebration.
