Celebrate Obon at The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel
The Sheraton Princess Ka`iulani Hotel is going all out to celebrate the Obon and the summer season.
Please join Fred Orr at the Princess Ka`iulani Hotel Bon Dance – Saturday August 6, 6:30pm-9pm Lava Rock Stage Area (Somei Taiko group of Aiea pictured above, will once again perform this weekend).
This Buddhist-Confucian custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors’ graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars.
It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.
