The first-ever Shibuya Bon-Odori Dance Festival was held yesterday at the famous Shibuya Crossing. And it was amazing!
The Bon-Odori Dance is one of the events that are a part of Obon, the Japanese festival to honor the spirits of ancestors. People all over Japan travel back to their homes to visit and clean their family graves. It is a solemn event, but the families also have time to have fun too.
