Ganbare Sendai!!

Have you ever heard the name of ‘Sendai’?
Maybe you knew Sendai for the first time through the news of Tohoku-Kanto earthquake on 11th March.
Sendai is my hometown, where there are a lot of beautiful colonnade of zelkova.


I would like to let you know about Sendai Tanabata(the Star Festival), which is the famous festival in Japan.
Normally Tanabata is on 7th of July. But Sendai Tanabata is held on 6th-8th of August.
Many people from whole of country visit Sendai Tanabata every year.
The highlight of Sendai Tanabata is the colorful decoration, especially ‘Fukinagashi’(Please see the photos) is absolutely fascinating!!
I went to see Sendai Tanabata many times, I feel Fukinagashi is upgrading every year.
Before Tanabata, we write our wishes on Tanzaku, a piece of long square paper, and hang on the Sasa(bamboo leaf).


Next time I will introduce Sendai’s specialty, ‘Gyutan’ .
