Kaila in Yukata Preview + Bon Festival in Urawa + Daikanyama with Sig

Hello everyone~

Before I go to bed after a long day, here's a "very Japanese" blog entry again, haha.

As always, I've been juggling a lot of activities and projects recently. Hopefully.. everything would work out fine in the end. :) Just going to remind myself over and over that I have to enjoy the breaks, struggles, and the entire craziness of it all. *gives self a pep talk*

ALSOOOOO... I have a big announcement these coming days too. Praying that it wouldn't be jinxed! Fight.jpg >_<

Bon Festival in our neighborhood.. wow. *_*

obon-Festival.jpg

Obon (お盆) or just Bon () is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist-Confucian custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori. (Source)
