How to enjoy rainy season in Japan




Now is the rainy season called “Tsuyu” in early summer in Japan.

Generally, it lasts from the beginning of June to the middle of July.


It doesn’t rain every day during Tsuyu.

We experience various kinds of rain such as sprinkle, heavy rain and sometimes rainstorm.



You might think Tsuyu is not good season for trip in Japan.

Even though rainy season, we have a traditional Japanese habit.



One of the habit is Tanabata that is the Star Festival in English.

Tanabata was born from the legend of Orihime and Hikoboshi.


Tanabata started to celebrate their once-a-year-reunion, it held on 7th July.

We display bamboo grass for Tanabata.



We write each wish on a strip of paper and hang it on the bamboo grass.

The strips of paper used to write wishes are called Tanzaku.


It is said that a wish comes true by writing it on Tanzaku.



However, it is also said that a wish doesn’t come true if Orihime and Hikoboshi can’t meet because of the rain.



Please write your wishes and hang on the bamboo grass at hotel kanra kyoto.
