Awa Odori - any “cultured” person is expected to perform some type of entertainment regardless of his or her ability or talent. Awa odori is among the most famous folk dancing during Bon festivals- to honor the spirits of one's ancestors. Unlike other Bon dances, Awa dancers "march" through the streets in unison in a straight line chanting, "It's a fool who dances and a fool who watches; if both are fools, you might as well dance!"

La fiesta celebra el encuentro entre Orihime (Vega) y Hikoboshi (Altair). La Vía láctea, un río hecho de estrellas que cruza el cielo, separa a estos amantes, y sólo se les permite verse una vez al año, el séptimo día del séptimo mes lunar del calendario lunisolar.

Tanabata ( 七夕) is the Japanese star festival which originated from Chinese folklore, The Princess and Cowherd. Learn more about Tanabata here.
