Asagaya (a district in central Tokyo) is well known as the place to be in the city during the festival. Elsewhere in Japan, Sendai is also famous for its Tanabata festivities.
Paper mache models suspended high in the air are trademarks of the holiday.
|Really nice one!|
|It's both commercial AND cultural! Sacre bleu!|
|Asagaya is hardcore Tanabata. In the main shopping arcade are permanent (but usually covered) slots for the trees!|
|Lots of games and fun stuff for the kiddies.|
|The 300 yen mystery box stall was doing monster business.|
|Fightin the good fight - it's the organic grocer's stall! ^_^|
|Here's what I had. :p|
|Celebrate good times...Tana!|
