USA "Obon Festival, Buddhist Temple of Salinas" Jay DunnAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
United States, California; Salinas, July 29, 2012. Usually held in the mid-summer in Japan, "Obon" is the traditional time to honor one's departed family members. Across America, this deeply spiritual Buddhist tradition has evolved into an event that celebrates all things Japanese as well. The festival usually culminates in joyful "odori" dances, meant to commemorate the ancestor's release from suffering. Photographed and recorded by Jay Dunn - dance photos Travis Geske.
