Bon Odori Malaysia 2010
(盆踊りis celebrated as a reminder of the gratitude one should feel toward one’s ancestor. Malaysia is one of the few countries (Brazil, USA and Canada) which celebrates Bon Odori Festival. I attended the festival last weekend. It received tremendous support from the locals, be it Malay, Chinese or Indian.
If you intend to go to next year’s Bon Odori, please be forewarned that traffic was absolutely a mess.
