Photographer's Note

This is from the Tanabata festival, aka Star Festival, the second largest in Japan. It typically takes place on the 7th of July, but the festival lasts a few days.

The idea with the hanging paper is for you to write your wishes on there and then have it hung from a bamboo tree, and perhaps you'll get what you wish for! The bamboo stalks are carried into the city every year and set up for this 4-day event.

I wasn't sure how to crop this so I left it uncropped. This was a tough one. What do you think?
