What is Bon Odori ? Many thought that it is a Japanese New Year celebration … OH NO NO ~ XXX
Bon Odori (盆踊り), meaning simply Bon dance is a style of dancing performed during Obon. Originally a Nenbutsu folk dance to welcome the spirits of the dead, the style of celebration varies in many aspects from region to region.
This was my 3rd time at Bon Odori, I find it less merry every year. Are Malaysians getting richer whereby they are spending most of their time in Japan, Korea and Europe ? I wish people cherish Bon Odori Malaysia more, or it will soon be gone !
I am here to share some photos on that special evening with you.Thanks Mr. Terrence Teh for the beautiful photos.
