On the 7th July it was Tanabata festival.

We celebrated not far from where we were staying in Asakusa.

There were lots of brightly coloured kites and decorations lining the street. There were also lots of street stalls selling beer and food and children’s toys.



We joined Tanabata quite late in the day but still managed to watch some of the citizens dance parade.


A lot of ladies wore yukata it was lovely to see. I changed into yukata in the evening as well.

I hope you get to enjoy Tanabata celebrations too.
