Tanabata – The Star Festival

July 5 July 7


If you are wondering where to experience Tanabata, Osaka’s Shitenno-ji temple would be a great choice. Every year, the temple grounds are filled with people of all ages attaching their wishes to the large bamboo display, eating summer festival fare – takoyaki, baby castella, fried noodles, shaved ice – and enjoying a drink or two.

The Tanabata decorations and the colorful bamboo tunnel of wishes will be lit up in the night.

Admission : Free

Lit-up : 19:00 to 23:00 ( till 21:00 on 7th)

Access : Shitennoiji-mae Yuhigaoka station on the Tanimachi subway line. Exit 4. Head down the alleyway next to the doughnut shop. 5 minutes on foot.
