Tanabata, the festival that celebrates the star-crossed lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi, takes place across Japan both in early July and in early August. You'll find one of Tokyo's longest-running incarnations in the western town of Fussa: while other such festivals tend to be fairly low-key affairs, this one (now into its 66th year) is packed with events, including a 'Princess Orihime contest', yurukyara appearances, parades and plenty of irresistible food sold at the around 100 stalls set up around the station.
