On the day of Tanabata on July 7th (Sunday), the annual children's treasure hunt was held along with the observation party, and their lively voices could be heard loud and clear. The participants wrote their wishes down on a piece of paper and each decorated in on a bamboo grass. On this day, another Nobunaga Oda, one who was made with polystyrene foam and colored, also made an appearance.
This year's rice field art was excellent and the most beautifully colored one ever, making it one to be proud of for the ages.
