Tanabata Festival with wind chimes at Hikawa Shrine | KAWAGOE

August 7, 2017 @ 09:00 - 21:00

The Tanabata Festival is held on August 7th annually in Hikawa Shrine Kawagoe.  They have a Wind Chime event simultaneously.

The shrine is decorated beautifully with bands of colour from the Tanabata wish strips. You can enjoy the decoration all day and add your own wish to the bamboo trees, but the festival itself is in the evening from 6 pm. They read kamishibai and have music and dance including shakuhachi flute performances.
