Tanabata is an event that is celebrated not only in Japan but also in many Asian countries such as China, South Korea, and Vietnam.
It is said that once a year, only on this day, Vega of Lyra, who is Orihime, and Altair of Aquila, who is Hikoboshi, can meet.
A long time ago, a beautiful princess named Orihime lived on the west bank of the Milky Way.
When his father, the Space Emperor, searched for Orihime's husband,, a young hard-working man named Hikoboshi lived in the east of the Milky Way, and they fell in love with each other, so the Emperor allowed them to marry.
However, when they got married, they were too close to work, and the angry Emperor forced not to meet them by the Milky Way.
The two were sorrowful and pitiful, and the Emperor made it possible to meet only Tanabata once a year.
Tanabata has been described in China since the Han dynasty, but it is said that it was introduced in Japan during the Nara period.
Since the Edo period, it has been said that writing a wish on a strip and decorating it will come true, and it is celebrated as a day when hopes come true.
