    These were taken at Little Tokyo Los Angeles, CA
    Obon is a custom honoring the spirits of one's ancestor. Also similar to Day of the Dead ( Dia de los Muertos ) which is celebrated by other cultures around the world. I wasnt able to get photos of the Taiko Drums performance but a couple of community dances and other stuff. Enjoy!
