The Tanabata Sake dinner place on Friday 7 July from 6.30 pm – 10.00 pm. A mouth-watering seasonal menu has been prepared for the event, with specialities such as Kagoshima Eel and Flash-smoked Wagyu Beef on offer to tempt diners. Each course is paired with a different Sake, beginning with a Kariho Kassei Junmei Sparkling Sake and ending with a Kishu Ryokucha Umeshu to tantalise the tastebuds.

Also known as the Star festival, the Tanabata honours the meeting of the stars, Altair and Vega. According to legend, they are separated by the Milky Way and only allowed to meet once a year. Inspired by a famous folk story, the festival has been in existence for over 1, 000 years. Festivities take place throughout Japan, with large colourful streamers decorating the streets and children hanging small wishes on bamboo trees.
