As we await the arrival of spring after a cold, snowy winter, we can look forward to the start of Obon odori practices at the Toronto Buddhist Church. Come out and learn dances to both traditional and modern Japanese songs. Beginners are welcome as step-by-step instructions are given, and veterans will recognise dances from years past.
Practices will be held every Tuesday and Friday nights, 8:00 – 9:30pm, starting on Tuesday April 23, 2019 until Obon.
Obon is a significant Buddhist celebration and it would be wonderful to see more TBC members participating especially Kids Sangha and their parents.
Obon odori is for all ages, any gender, the young and the young at heart. So come out to the TBC to learn odori, see old friends, make new ones, and have some fun! The Obon festival will be held on the evening of Saturday July 13, 2019 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre following Natsu Matsuri.
