Japan's July 7 will be full of wishes.

That seems like one very mean god. They can only see each other once a year?!

How is that a wish come true?

The wish would have been to be together again -- not just see each other once a year.

Fairy tales from the 'old days' make no sense anymore... it's a different world.

This picture is accurate.

He has a big club, and he's about to whack her with it.

Oh, but if you like this show-Zi -- then I like it too.

And I retract all of that above.

In summary, it's a legend like 'Romeo and Juliet'. It seems to have spread as an event to convey their wishes because their wishes would come true. Interestingly, due to the lunar calendar, a similar event is also held on August 7.

It's an event that has been going on for a long time, so I didn't think it was strange. I think it's natural that it looks strange from different cultural perspectives. It is right for you to express your own opinion. :):emoji_fingers_crossed:
