Obon Begins

Tonight is the beginning of Obon in Okinawa. It is a celebration that honors their dead ancestors who come back to their homes to visit. Some people practice it hardcore, but many use it as a time to get together with their family and friends. I sure wish we could somehow use this time to glorify the Lord. The celebration goes on for 3 days. The Asa dancers come through the neighborhood singing and dancing. They do this at the beginning and ending of Obon.
