Thinking of Japan

From a collection of animated films "Lullabies of the world/Japanese Lullaby"
A haunting melody.
The story behind the animation is a myth about the love between The Spinning Maiden or Weaving girl and Oxherder - constellation of Lyra and Aquila.
On July 7, the Weaving Girl star (Vega) and the Oxherder star (Altair) meet across the Silver River (the Milky Way). They are allowed to meet only once a year.
