2016 Bon Dance on Kauai

Aloha Everyone! 2016 Bon Dance on Kauai will start tonight at Lihue Hongwanji!!!


The weather looks good so far this morning and hope it won't rain tonight and tomorrow night.


This year, I completely failed to reserve my vacation since I forgot to keep at least a week for the family trip.  Then I realized I've had enough service and appointments already.  So I'm planning to stay here for entire O-Bon season and participate in all Bon Dances here on Kauai.  Here is a schedule;

For ordering lanterns, please contact me through this contact.

You may email me but I found out some emails were not delivered rightly but directly came to the junk mail box.  (This means I'm sorry I'm sure there should have some mails I've never read.) 


So the best way to contact me is through this contact or I personally prefer to receive a text at 635-8530. 


Anyway, please have a good O-Bon season and Aloha.
