Tanabata and Osaka

Ok I'm going to make it a goal to post on here at least once a week. Lets see if I can. :P

Tomorrow night I'm heading to Osaka. I can't wait! Two of my friends live in or around there so I'm super excited to see them.

Friday night I went to a bit of a Tanabata (Star Festival) with a girl from work. It was so nice we are going again tonight.
We wrote our wishes on plastic stars and hung them from giant branches of a bamboo tree. The will burn the branches to send the wishes to the heavens.
The main street was crammed with people, a lot wearing yukata, and stalls of food and excellent shops.
All I had on me was my phone so my photos were terrible. I'll try to remember to take a better camera tonight.
