Iwaki Star Festival 2011

Tanabata Matsuri or the Star Festival is most famous in Sendai but we also have here in Iwaki, it's not that extravagant like of Sendai though. Tanabata matsuri is also the most awaited event for my kids during the summer. Colourful streamers hanging, games and of course, foodies! (*^o^*)

The main tradition of the the Star Festival is to write your wish on a piece of paper called the tanzaku and tie it to the bamboo branch. Wakaba and Haruka were able to enjoy the food and beautiful sights~ Iwaki transforms itself into a colourful festival town! We had a great time walking through^_^

Haruka and Wakaba was delighted to take a picture with this rabbit named 幸せ屋(Shiawaseya, supported by Merry Project ) that gives heart filled with message of encouragement which makes you really happy.
