Bon Dance Information

Obon season is a very meaningful time to remember our loved ones who have passed away before us, and time to reflect on our lives. 

In Jodo Shinshu Buddhist tradition, Obon is called "Kangi-e" which means "Gathering of Joy" in the Light of Compassion of Amida Buddha. 

Bon Odori Dance is the way of expressing our appreciation and joy of life in the Buddha's compassion
