One of the fun activities when traveling to Japan in summer is summer festivals. In addition to the classic fireworks festivals, in cities there are also events such as beer gardens. Among the various festivals, Obon is the largest events. For Japanese, Obon is the when they pray to their ancestors. On top of the traditional ritual ceremonies, Obon festivals that vary depending on the regions are being held. Japan’s three biggest Bon Odori that are held during this period are Gifu’s “Gujo Hachiman Bon Odori (郡上八幡盆踊り)”, Tokushima’s “Awa Odori (阿波踊り)” and Akita “Nishimonai Bon Odori (西馬音内盆踊り)”. Among them, Tokushima’s “Awa Odori” has attracted public attention.
