The Bon Odori festival saw dancers, young and old, dance their way around the JCCC parking lot to the beat of taiko drums. Kunio Suyama and Bob Nishikawa were the MCs and a short Obon service was conducted by Reverends Yanko, Sugahara and Endo. There were stage performances by Sakura-Kai, Ayame-Kai, the TBC Buyo group and Isshin Daiko during the intermission. Many people joined in for the ever-popular audience participation dances.
We would like to express our many thanks to the odori groups, their dancers, the TBC Minyo, Taiko group, and all the helpers who made the Bon Odori festival a great success.
