Legendely lovers meet once a year on the day of the Star Festival.

Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, is to celebrate the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. People generally celebrate this day by writing wishes on small pieces of paper and hanging them on bamboo.
