Obon Festival

Every year we celebrate Obon Festival on 13th July, it is a time when the souls of dead ancestors are supposed to return home for three days. In particular, prayers are said for anyone who has died in the previous year as it is believed that they need more guidance to find their way. The festival was started in the 7th century although many of the events have changed and it is one of the most significant and enjoyable of the Japanese festivals. It goes by a variety of names, the most popular of which is "The Festival or Feast of the Dead". On this day people clean their houses and offer a variety of food such as vegetables and fruits to the spirits of ancestors in front of a 'butsudan' (Buddhist families altar). The butsudan is decorated with flower and 'chouchin' (paper lanterns). However it is a special occasion celebrated in Japan so reach out this day with your friends and family also wishes them a happy and glorious day.
