Obon (around mid-August ); the Festival of Souls. In this festival a variety of foods are offered to the spirits of ancestors, and their repose prayed for. People who have moved to the cities to work return to their home towns during this period.
Today is the first day during Obon. I guess Obon and Oshogatsu(the New Year)is very ritual custom
To be honest...i just got lost my precious lovely mother 6 months ago. I STILL cant believe the fact. i am really missing her.My father asked our Buddhist priest(called Obosan who lives in the temple)) to come to house and prey for her,so that we gathered to my parents house as like most of Buddhist do that.
As the Buddhist, we believe that soul always return to home,so we 're calmly waiting for my mother .
Anyway this is the special food for today. we celebrated mommy's return.
