Dive into a pool of color in “Universe of Words”, an installation by French architect and designer @emmanuellemoureaux. Created using 140,000 cut-out Japanese characters, the immersive installation was partly inspired by Tanabata, a Japanese festival where people attach pieces of colored paper containing wishes. 📷: @daisuke_shima_photography via @highsnobiety
Yamaga lantern dancers at the Tanabata festivities at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine. Aren't their costumes amazing? Tanabata is known as the "Star Festival," and celebrates the one day each year (July 7) legendary star-crossed lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi can cross the Milky Way to meet.
