    Hi. I'm newbie, still learning.

    I went to Bon Odori, but felt kinda hard to shoot, because my lens couldn't zoom closer. So the photos below, mostly are cropped and edited.

    Obon (お盆, Obon?) or just Bon (盆, Bon?) is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. Also called the Feast of Lanterns, it has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

    Hope you like it.

    Thank you.
