Tanabata Crafts - Tanzaku & Koyori

Tanabata Week- Day 3! Make your own wishing paper with us!

Tanabata or Star Festival, has been celebrated for hundreds of years in Japan on 7/7, the one day a year that the two lovers in the famous Tanabata myth can cross the Milky Way to meet.

Today The Japanese Friendship Garden invites you to watch our third video in our Tanabata week series where you can learn to make and hang your own wishes using tanzaku to celebrate the holiday. Tanzaku are colored strips of paper for writing poems or wishes which are hung on bamboo during Tanabata. Come to the Garden on Saturday, 7.11 in order to try it for yourself.
