The Obon tradition was brought to Hawaii by Japanese immigrants and evolved into a social and cultural event, as well as a religious custom designed to honor ancestors through an evening of dance, music and merry-making. This particular bon dance was presented by the Honpa Hongwanjii Hawaii Betsui on June 27, 2009 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
