San José Obon

Another year, another Obon festival. In Japan, this is their version of Día de los Muertos where you remember and honor your ancestors. In the US, while there’s still some of this, it’s morphed into a major celebration of Japanese-Americanness with all kinds of food, treats, entertainment, games, etc. I’m glad it’s in the summer so I can look forward to taking my sons, all dressed up, to this year after year.
