Tanabata is based on the legendary meeting of two stars, Hikoboshi and Orihime, which are represented by Altair and Vega.
Hikoboshi and Orihime fell in love and were really into each other. After their marriage, they stopped working and had been neglactive their work. So, an angry god separated them up by the river called Ama-no-gawa. However, god permitted them to reunite once a year on July 7th.
Tanabata is held on that day every year and people decorate bamboo trees with colorful pieces of paper to pray for Orihime and Hikoboshi to come together. It is also believed that wish will come true when you write on the paper strips and hang them on bamboo trees.
