Local Obon and Summer Festival Guide!
We're coming upon the Obon and summer festival time in Northern California. Many local organizations, including Japanese Buddhist temples, hold Bon Odori festivals and summer bazaars. Many offer Bon Odori dance practices before their festival that anyone can join. Why not learn your local temple's dances and join in on some Japanese summer fun in your community?
