July 2nd, 2013 The Star Festival (Tanabata)

July 7th (Tanabata) has been familiar in Japan from long time ago as the day that people think of a myth about the star Vega and Milky Way.

In my hometown, an event like Halloween is held every year in Tanabata, and children visit one another's houses to get a lot of sweets.

It is said that Milky Way is the crowd of stars. It's a strange feeling to think that we can see ancient stars now. See you!
