The event is not interactive and only involves a limited-time festive item that players can use to decorate their islands. While it goes extremely well with Japanese-themed islands, it is also a delight to see islands with orchards or themed beaches.

Since bamboo grass is a limited-time item, players should get their hands on it as soon as possible. The item will not arrive in the game until next year on Tanabata unless players travel through time.
