Tanabata (Evening of the Seventh), acrylic on paper, 18 x 12The Sky King sets up his lonely daughter, the weaver princess, with a cow herder. Love blooms. The princess stops weaving. The herder lets his cows roam free all over Heaven. The Sky King is angered by the couple’s neglect and separates them across the Milky Way, only allowing them to meet once a year on the seventh day of the seventh month. Magpies hear the princess crying, spread their wings and form a bridge across the Milky Way for the two to reunite.During the Tanabata Festival, wishes are written on paper strips and hung from bamboo branches to celebrate the annual reunion of star-crossed lovers.

These sun showers are thought to be a cover for the fox wedding.Kitsune-bi (foxfire) is witnessed at night as strings of lanterns or torches winding in a procession through the mountains – these lights are also thought to be phosphorescent fungus or oxidation of chemical phosphine from decaying plant matter. Foxfire processions are a rare sight now, attributed to deforestation.
