The Celebration of Tanabata at IROHA Center (Video)


On July 7, 2019 at IROHA Center there was celebrated the traditional Japanese holiday Tanabata. The celebration was launched by the greeting speech of the president of IROHA Center Ruzan Khojikyan and the presentation of the order of celebration to the audience.

Then there was a beautiful, small performance about Tanabata in Japanese.

After that in accordance with the meaning of the holiday all the attendees wrote down their dreams on papers and hung them from the branches of the Christmas tree. In fact they should be hung from the branches of a bamboo tree but as they don’t grow in our climatic conditions we use Christmas tree for this purpose.

Then there was the interesting Japanese feast with games Nagasisoba, which has already become a tradition.


There was a hospitality,


and of course a stroll in the city in kimonos.
