When You Wish Upon a Star

July 7th, it’s a “Tanabata” which is the Star Festival tonight in Japan.
It's based on the legend that Orihime (Weaving Princess) and Hikoboshi (Cow herder), two lovers would be allowed to meet each other at the shores of the Milky Way or “Ama-no-gawa” only once a year.

Orihime and Hikoboshi were so deeply in love with each other that they ended up neglecting their duties.
The heavenly gods got angry and separated them onto the different sides of the “Ama-no-gawa” and only allowed to meet once a year on July 7th.

On the night of July 7th, people write their wishes on colorful paper strips and hang them on bamboo leaves.
If it rains on “Tanabata” night, the “Ama-no-gawa” will be flooded with rainwater and Orihime and Hikoboshi won’t be able to meet each other.
Many people pray for good weather for “Tanabata”.
If Hikoboshi and Orihime are able to meet each other in that year without problems, the wish you had written on the paper strip will come true.
It's said that "Tanabata" is a special day for lovers because it's the day when lovers reunite.

I’ll present you a beautiful picture of the “Ama-no-gawa” from the Bonin Islands, in case if you can’t see stars at your place tonight.



Orihime represents Vega, Hikoboshi represents Altair.
