****** Concept of Obon Festival *******
In middle of August(from 13th to 16th Aug), In Japan we have Obon holidays. Obon means the festival of souls. This is very unique and one of the most important family holidays. It’s believed that ancestors’ spirits to return to the world of the living on the day. Family gets together to think and appreciate their ancestor. It’s a Family reunion.
So Japanese kids say “For O-Bon we go back to my father’s hometown where my grandparents live. So people come back to local place where they were born.”
On the more festive side of things, at night, people head to the local community center or hall where it’s like a big carnival. There’s lots of music, dancing and vendors selling food, toys, and souvenirs. People usually wear Yukata(lightweight cotton kimono) and join in the big community dance.
Thank you so much for over 200 awesome artworks from children in Sunshine Coast. We’d love to congratulate all the children who had participated in this event. Lots of thoughts are put into the artworks and we appreciate parents and teachers support as well to guide the children to learn about Japan. Thank you Dr Wheatgrass for your sponsorship for this event!!
