Last month we celebrate Tanabata Matsuri at home and this time Erika loves the colorful Tanabata festival held in Anjo City where her father's relatives live. According to my husband The festival starts 50 years before wherein on that time huge streamers were only made of papers and was being prepared many weeks before the festival comes.
