Once a year in Japan, people celebrate the returning home of the spirits of family ancestors. It was one of my favorite childhood memory to attend Obon Festival in Summer with delicious food, Bon Odori dance and Traditional drum and music.

At Shofuso house and garden, we will get to experience this wonder festival with its history, culture and art. The day will include live music, food, Japanese arts and crafts, a flea market, Tea ceremony and a traditional bon dance.

Just in case you don't know yet, the Shofuso is a hidden gem in Philadelphia. The beautiful traditional Japanese house and garden is full of zen-power. The Shofuso Festival is free and if you want to visit the garden you can purchase ticket at the door.

Come join me to learn about Japanese culture and enjoy Obon festival.

PS.. The costume is Yukata or Kimono, Not slutty nurse or superman.
