O-Bon, the Spirit Festival
If you are a fellow Portland Japanese Gardens Member this will be the event for you. If you aren't it's so worth it.
O-Bon is an annual Buddhist memorial festival honoring the deceased. Stroll the Garden in quiet contemplation before taking part in our Toro Nagashi (lantern floating). This traditional practice of floating lanterns in the water is thought to guide ancestral spirits back to the celestial world after their annual return during O-Bon. Guests are welcomed to light a floating candle in memory of a departed family and friends.
Please no tripods or flash photography. For safety, the Natural Garden will be closed to guests during O-Bon.
Free Member-Only Event
