Tanabata is one of the most famous summer festivals in Japan—usually celebrated on July 7—literally means the “seventh night.” Known as the Star Festival, it is one of the many Japanese festivals originating from China and has been celebrated in Japan since the 700s.
Though there are a few variations about the origins of Tanabata, all revolve around two lovers who have to cross the Milky Way to be with each other only for one single night each year.
A Legend of Eternal Love & Patience
The legend goes that Orihime (a weaving princess) and Hikoboshi (a cowherd), met and fell truly, madly, deeply in love with each other, and eventually tied the knot. But, love—being the only thing on their minds—shifted their attention from work to each other, making them—in the eyes of others—lazy and demotivated. Orihime’s father, the king of the Heavens, furious at their negligence of other important affairs separated them, sending the two to opposite sides of the Milky Way. Orihime became the star Vega and Hikoboshi, the star Altair.
Heartbroken Orihime cried her heart out day and night—which didn’t help much in getting her back on track, as her father had hoped. Moved by Orihime’s tears, the king agreed to allow the couple to meet only once a year—on July 7. And that is how Tanabata was born.

Cool And Healing
Exhibition: Dancing Goldfish 2020
Goldfish have long been familiar to the common people since the Edo period as one of the cooling symbols of summer in Japan. This exhibition will focus on the color and shape of goldfish, and the unique behavior of the tail fins that make them look like they are dancing elegantly in the water. The works of aesthetic fish imagery and illustrations will not only capture the beauty of summer but also cool us down during the hot and humid weather.
After the spread of COVID19, we musicians lost the place to perform and express ourselves. This made us realize how much we had been blessed.
