2 Day Tour To Sendai Tanabata Matsuri

Tanabata festivals, also known as "star festivals", are held across Japan on the 7th day of the 7th month of the year, when, according to Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega cross paths. Due to differences between the lunar calendar and the solar calendar, modern Tanabata festivals take place either in July or August.

Day 1: Departure from home country

From Haneda or Narita go to Sendai

Day 2: Arrival / Sendai

While festivities take place throughout Downtown Sendai, the festival's main feature are thousands of colorful streamers that decorate the city's shopping arcades, which come to resemble brightly colored forests. Each set of 3-5 meter long streamers is handcrafted by local shops, schools, and community groups out of washi paper and bamboo. They are then hung from ten-meter long bamboo poles along the arcades.
