The tanabata palm is a furniture item in Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+. The player can interact with this item to bring up a dialog.

The tanabata palm can be obtained from Crazy Redd's Furniture Emporium for  1,925 Bells, Wisp, a treasure hunt, or trees when the player has good luck. In Doubutsu no Mori+, it can instead be obtained from Tortimer during Tanabata. For the purpose of fêng shui, its color is special. This item is lucky, meaning it gives a 777-point Happy Room Academy bonus when placed in the player's house.

When interacted with, one of nine colored tags will be read at random:

  • The red tag says: "I want to become a better cook."
  • The blue tag says, "I hope I don't get hurt or sick."
  • The green tag says, "I hope I get to eat a lot."
  • The yellow tag says, "I hope I become popular."
  • The orange tag says, "I hope I learn to learn better."
  • The pink tag says, "I hope he notices me."
  • The pale blue tag says, "I hope I make lots of new friends."
  • The yellow tag says, "I hope everyone gets along."
  • The silver tag says, "I hope everybody goes to the island this year. ーKapp'n"

No villagers have this item in their home.
