Cooking Class on Jul 7th ’16 Tanabata day!

You may see colorful bamboo brunches when you are in Japan in this season. That is Japanese traditional early summer scene.  If you have chance I recommend you to write your wish on the paper strip!

*What is Tanabata?

July 7th is Japanese event of Tanabata, which is a star festival. The event derived  from originally Chinese romantic legend story of the Vega and Artier who are separated by milky way.  We wish to hold their reunion  also we write our wish on a colorful paper strip and hung on the bamboo brunches.  We believe that the wish come true if we write and decollate for bamboo leaves.
