Shibuya Bon-Odori Dance Festival!

Bon Odori Shibuya

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.
