Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken by the Tanabata Festival performed in Tokyo east Ueno. The Tanabata decoration colored origami has been arranged and many roadside stands had appeared in both sides along the route. The Tanabata Festival is a festival suitable in summer. If you walk along a place along the route, it will pass by the woman who wore the yukata. A yukata is a kind of Japanese clothes. It is an ordinary dress which unlike the usual Japanese clothes does not wear underkimono but it wears on bare skin. Usually, it is the material of a cotton and becomes a structure simplest in Japanese clothes, and fundamental. It is mainly an event in summer, such as a fireworks display, a fair, and a Bon festival dance, that many yukatas are worn by present-day Japan's life. Since color and the design are variegated are delighted to seen people.
