34th Bon Odori Festival in Shah Alam

Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori. In Malaysia, it is celebrated on a smaller scale when compared to those in Japan. The main venue are Panasonic sports complex in Shah Alam.
