Tanabata : Tanabata is a Japanese star festival on 7th July. Similar to Valentine's Day in the west, it's dedicated to two lovers who are separated in the heavens until this day, when swallows fly up and create a bridge for them to meet on.

七夕 - 風のように 水のように

Kingyo sukui (goldfish scooping) is a popular game at matsuri. You get to keep the fish, if you can get it into the bowl before your rice paper scoop disintegrates.

You can find the slips of paper with wishes written on them all over Japan around Tanabata, not just at the matsuri.

Party idea (on a smaller scale!): Guests write messages on ribbons and attach them to a branch or small potted tree.
