Tanabata Festival
Series; Annual Events in Prosperous Edo

Tanabata Festival - Terrific scene of beauties celebrating the Tanabata Festival, enjoying a view of the festivities from an upper story verandah. In the center a young girl leans eagerly over the railing, watching as traditional displays of bamboo adorned with poem slips and streamers flutter in the wind across the city. At right, a beauty looks up from playing the koto, while behind her a matron carries a tray full of sweets. Paper lanterns decorated with flowers hang overhead, and stars twinkle in the evening sky. A charming depiction of this annual holiday. A rarely seen Chikanobu subject.
