第59回湘南ひらつか七夕まつり

Shonan Hiratsuka Tanabata Festival

平成21年7月2日(木)から5日

July 2 to July 5 (YEARLY - every first week of July)

 

Tanabata (七夕, tanabata, meaning "Evening of the seventh") is a Japanese star festival, derived from the Chinese star festival, Qi Xi (七夕 "The Night of Sevens").

 

It celebrates the meeting of Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair). The Milky Way, a river made from stars that crosses the sky, separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.
