obon 2016

just as i had hoped, i attended the ekoji obon festival again this year. the girls jumped at the chance to volunteer for food service again, having enjoyed themselves immensely last year, and i offered to be their transportation. rough job, i know.

i took few photos because i was running low on my phone/camera battery. i kept busy by singlehandedly devouring entire portions tasting samples of the delicious hot foods. i mostly sat in the shade and enjoyed performances by nen daiko, the aloha boys, and lots of dancers.
