“Obon” – Japanese Kanji Symbols for Bon Festival

obonI wrote “Obon”. It means “Bon Festival” in English.

  1. “O” is honorific prefix
  2. “Bon” means Tray

Obon is  the event to honor the departed soul of one’s ancestors. In Obon season, the soul of ancestors come home. So, we invite them and hold a service and make a seeing off.

In the area where I live, Obon starts from August 13.

What is your favorite word about season? I’m waiting for a request.
