As I was walking to the super market today, I head some
Omatsuri festival sounds from Sunshine Ikebukuro building.
It was 32nd Anniversary of Sunshine City Bon Odori Festival.
"Obon" or just" 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.
There were so many people there~
I also bought Fried noodles there for 250 yen~
It was really yummy~♪
