2007 Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple Obon


After work on Saturday, July 28, 2007, I walked over to the 2007 Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple obon to meet my friends for some food, some dancing, and some fun! The first thing I did when I arrived was buy manju, something I look forward to at every obon. I then watched some performances on stage and played a rubber duckie race game. I was victorious!

The Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple is located at 505 E. 3rd Street in Los Angeles, CA, 90013. My friends and I ate and enjoyed the entertainment. But, we were really waiting for the dancing to begin. We were so excited when it did! There were so many people there, we got pushed out of our dancing lane multiple times!

This collection features pictures of this obon, and pictures of activities that I participated in. Enjoy!
