Tanabata in Japan
Hello everyone! How are you doing?
I hope that nothing happens to you:)
Speaking of July, Tanabata comes to Japanese people when they hear the word “July”.
I will explain about it here:)
Tanabata is based on the legendary meeting of two stars, Hikoboshi and Orihime, which are represented by Altair and Vega, respectively.
After his marriage to Orihime, Hikoboshi idled away and didn’t work.
An angry god split Hikoboshi and Orihime apart from the two banks of the Milky Way.
However, the god permitted Hikoboshi and Orihime to reunite once a year on July 7.
So Tanabata is held on that day every year, and it is said to be the day when lovers can reunite.
How about this? I hope they will be able to meet each other at least 2 or 3 times within a year. haha
