A setting sun is poised on the horizon’s edge. Flickering lantern’s reveal themselves, drifting on a river, each light warm with a loved one’s memory. The water itself is ablaze, with the sun and lanterns casting their fiery glow. The light illuminates the river waves and the hearts of those across this quiet land.
Bon Odori is a traditional summer festival to honor our ancestors. We remember all they have done for us, and we celebrate their presence in the lives we enjoy today.
