I wrote “Obon”. It means “Bon Festival” in English.
- “O” is honorific prefix
- “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.
