Star Festival in Konan

Star Festival (星見祭り; Hoshimi Matsuri) is the festival that Miaka, Nuriko, and Tasuki go to in Konan the night before the group went to Hokkan to begin their search for the Genbu's Shinzaho.

This festival could be traced back to the real-life Qixi Festival, a Chinese festival celebrating the annual meeting of two star-crossed lovers. The festival has also been called the Night of Sevens, which is quite fitting for Fushigi Yuugi.
