Overview of festivals and celebrations in Japan

On July 7th, Tanabata known as the Star Festival is held in Japan. According to legend, it was on this night that the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the Weaver Stars (Vega) and Cowherd Star (Altair)) who were previously separated by the Milky Way meet just once a year. The Japanese write down their wishes on paper tapes which they subsequently tie around the stems of wild bamboo. The Buddhist Obon Festival is a three-day celebration (August 13-15) dedicated to the commemoration of the dead. The Japanese believe that on these nights, the souls of the dead come to visit the living. During this time, festive services are held in temples. Refreshments are exhibited at the home altars and lights are lit at the entrances to the houses. They believe that by doing this, the soul can go to their light. In the evenings, traditional ritual dances are held in the Parks. The end of the holiday is marked with a ceremony of floating lanterns when a lot of paper lanterns with candles inside float on the water to lead the souls of the deceased back to the realm of the dead. … Open
