.

Now on its 10th year of celebration, Tanabata is also known as the “star festival” and means night ofthe seventh. The festival is Inspired by an old Chinese “star legend” of Orihime (a weaving princess) and Prince Hikoboshi (a cow herder). Legend says that the lovers were separated by Tentei(the Sky King) across the milky way (Amanogawa) because they failed to meet their responsibilities after marriage. The origin of the legend dates back 2000 years ago.

Tanabata is a Japanese tradition where people write their wishes on Tanzaku papers(colorful, small strips of paper) and hang them on bamboo branches outside their houses. This will also be done during the opening of the exhibits at the Baguio Museum.
