Program Description


Traditionally, Japanese have 'obon' festivals in the summer where villagers come out to dance and commemorate one's ancestors. Join performers from the Enmanji Buddhist Temple and the Sonoma County Japanese American Citizens League as they share traditions of this festival.

 This program was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
