Miyagi | Sendai Tanabata Festival

Make a wish at the traditional Japanese summertime celebration in the Tohoku region

As one of the three major festivals of the Tohoku region, this beautiful summer tradition of Sendai has its roots in the seasonal event of Tanabata, or Star Festival. It is characterized by colorful bamboo decorations that brighten up the shopping arcades to delight the two million visitors who come from all over Japan to see the festival. A leisurely stroll along the shopping arcades to view the brightly colored streamers waving overhead is a must for all visitors.
