Our family's Tanabata celebration

To commemorate the story of Tanabata, Japanese people decorate bamboo and write down wishes to hang on it. This is our Tanabata bamboo.

We made origami in various shapes...

Then we wrote our wishes for the year on little cards and hung them from the bamboo as well.

That night, Ushikai and Orihime met on Magpie Bridge. We hope that our wishes will come true, just like theirs does once a year.
