Bon Odori 2018

One of my favourite village events has to be Bon Odori. A Buddhist celebration held in July on the grounds of Steveston’s Buddhist temple, Bon Odori is known as the Festival of Souls. It is during this time the Japanese believe the souls of their ancestors return and the dances are performed to welcome their spirits. For more images from the festival, click here.
