What is Bon Holidays??

This is Ena from Hiroshima Hana Hostel.
It has been super HOT. It is not just hot ...hot-humid this summer.
I really hope it gets cooler soon.

In mid-August,I visited my relative's house with my family for Bon holidays.
Usually,Japanese people go back to their personal home or their grandparents home  to honor the spirit of one’s ancestors for those days.
Our family and my cousins gather in our aunt's house every year to spend a night having a barbeque and enjoying the local Bon festival at elementary school.

Most of my cousins are older than me and already have their family,so we  do not have so many opportunities to see them but we all enjoyed the night .

Also,we danced the Bon-Odori dance hard....was really FUN!
