Makawao Hongwanji Bon Dance

As the O-bon Festival season continues we went to Makawao for the festival at the Makawao Hongwanji Mission.  (See previous Bon Dance post here)

A dancer rests between songs. And yes, that is a Hello Kitty fan tucked into her obi belt.

A cool breeze came down from the mountain and the half moon shown brightly over us as we danced. It was a beautiful night.
