The star festival

The old name for July is "Fuzuki", which means the month of writing poems especially for the star festival that falls on July7. Nowadays, children write down their wishes on oblong cards, which are tied to bamboo branches. On a quiet rainy Monday afternoon, July 4, 2014, I visited two places: one at a department store in Center Minami, northern Yokohama and an old house near Yokohama subway's Nakamachidai station to observe the star festival.
