OBON FESTIVAL 🇯🇵

comin' at ya live
  1. I don't know much more than that it's a Japanese Buddhist festival where you celebrate the spirits of ancestors
    (I think kinda like how there's Día de los Muertos)
  2. This list is mostly about the Bon-Odori though
    Which is the dance during Obon
  3. Every time my family has visited Maui in the summer we've come to the Obon festival to watch the Bon-Odori
  4. They opened this Bon-Odori with a message to get past our self-centeredness and be with the ancestors' spirits
    It was more eloquently worded but I forgot exactly what they said because I'm the worst
  5. Taiko drumming
  6. Geta on her feeeet
  7. They also sell Chow Fun every year which is definitely Cantonese, not Japanese but that's ok
  8. These Chinese pretzels aren't Japanese either but everyone in Hawaii loves them lol
