Description

The Tanabata Festival is held all throughout the city, with its base in the Hiratsuka Station North Entrance shopping district. As one of Japan’s big three Tanabata festivals, this huge festival is immensely popular. The highlight of the festival are the food stands lining the main shopping street, above which hang large Tanabata decorations that color the entire arcade. Countless tourists flock to the festival every year. In the evening the decorations are illuminated, creating an even more beautiful, memorable scene. So put on your summer yukata robes and indulge in delicious street food, because Tanabata only comes once a year.
