Tanabata: the Star Festival

Bring the whole family to the Portland Japanese Garden for this year’s celebration of the traditional Japanese Tanabata festival. Take part in traditional Tanabata customs like folding origami paper ornaments and writing wishes on colorful strips of paper called tanzaku. Enjoy Kamishibai storytelling with longtime friend of the Garden Michiko Kornhauser and the music of Tokyo-born guitarist Toshi Onizuka. This event is family friendly and a great opportunity for people to learn and experience one of Japanese traditional festivals and activities.
