Bon Odori Festival 2009( Selangor )

It’s one of my favorite Japanese event which is it’s more to “original” Japanese stuff.

Synopsis : The Bon Festival is a Japanese Buddhist custom which is held annually to honour the deceased spirits of one’s ancestors. It is meant to be a joyful celebration, bringing families together, and celebrating rather than mourning the lives of the dearly departed.

The Bon Odori Festival has been a fixture here in Malaysia for the last 30 odd years, and is more a festival of Japanese culture, with Japanese dances – including the traditional Bon Odori, danced specially for this occassion – music, food and lots more, presented throughout the evening.
