Originating from Chinese folklore, Tanabata is a holiday that celebrates the meeting of Orihime and Hikoboshi. This Saturday, July 7th, JFG will have activity booths where guests can participate in popular Tanabata customs such as writing your wish on tanzaku (small pieces of colored paper) to hang on bamboo and helping create a community kazari (decoration)!

Activities will begin at 11:00 AM at the upper garden Plaza area and run through 3 pm!

There will also be a professional kimono dresser renting out kimono for those interested in celebrating Tanabata in traditional fashion!
