Shonan Hiratsuka Tanabata Festival


Hiratsuka’s Tanabata Star Festival is the biggest in the Kantō region, attracting around 1.7 million visitors over the three days of the festival. The colorful festivities will be centered around the shopping street on the north side of Hiratsuka Station. The official event will continue until 8 p.m.

Officially, it is one of the “three great Tanabata Festivals in Kantō” — although the other two (in Iruma and Mobara) are much smaller.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
