What is Bon Odori?
Bon-Odori means “Bon Festival dance”. It is an event held during Bon Festival every summer in Japan. This is a Japanese Buddhist holiday to honor the departed spirits of one’s ancestors. Now, Bon-Odori is not only in Japan but also here in Cebu City, Philippines.
Bon-Odori is held in Cebu City every summer for 2 days. Many people experienced Japanese Culture. They eat Japanese food like Takoyaki, Ramen and many more. Some people also did cosplay with their favorite Anime character and lastly to watch the Bon-dance performance. Here are details for Bon-Odori.

In the game table, we have Pinball and the Coin Drop. They would play and could win a prize.

The program ended with fireworks at 10 pm. It’s a very tiring but happy day for us because we have fun and enjoyable moments with the people who visited our booth. Watching them play and smile is a great thing for us..
So see you tomorrow for the last day of Bon-Odori.
