One of the biggest Tanabata Festivals in Japan!
The Ichinomiya Tanabata Festival, also known as "Star" Festival, is held to show gratitude to the Yorozu-hata-toyo-akitsushi-hime-no-mikoto, Hatori Shrine's god of textiles. It is also a time to pray for prosperity in this area, since textiles are Ichinomiya's leading industry.
