[ Meet the Ancestors ]

Speaking of the traditional Japanese festivals in August, people must think about the "O-Bon". O-Bon is a festival of tomb-sweeping and mukaebi-lighting to thank the gods and ancestors. The O-Bon is usually held around August 13~16 (varied from place to place), during this period, many companies will stop working, and people will return home to sweep the tombs, meet their relatives and offer ancestors. This time I'd like to introduce to you the methods of Japanese offering ancestors during O-Bon.
