Tanabata Party

Have you heard about "Tanabata 七夕"?
Tanabata is Japanese star festival,derived from Chinese one.

There is the legend of Orihime(Vega) and Hikoboshi(Altair).
They are separated by the Milky way, a river made from stars that crosses the sky, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar, the 7th of July.

When you walk around in this season, you would see decorated bamboo trees often, because people write their wishes on strips of colorful paper and then hang them on bamboo branches to celebrate the festival.

Well, let's get to the point. We're going to have the first summer party on the 6th of July, though not on the 7th.. we hope you can enjoy summer evening in upgraded our backyard with our nice guests and new staffs.

Date: 6th of July (Tuesday)
Start about 19:00-19:30
Place: J-Hoppers Osaka Backyard and Kitchen
