T.G.I.F.: Owara Kaze-no-Bon Festival, Toyama

September 1st~3rd celebrates the Toyama Bon festival, Owara Kaze-no-Bon Matsuri. This traditional folk festival welcomes the harvest season while 'appeasing the wind' and honouring ancestors. Much dancing and traditional folk-singing is involved. You can also see festival participants in traditional garbs and headdresses. Click the image below for more information...


  1. This time of the year is famous for the Bon Odori. We have a big one in Gujo (Gifu Prefecture) lasting from July 14 to September 8. Still just enough time to see it :)

    1. Its kind of sad how summer is drawing to a close and the summer festivals are going away... Thanks for commenting as always!
