The festival will feature food, games, a taiko drum performance, martial arts demonstrations, bonsai exhibits, Asian crafts, and traditional Japanese dance.
The Bon Odori, led by SLOBC members Tomi Kobara and Julie Conaway, will include a new dance, “Ichigo Ichiye” by Nobuko Miyamoto of Senshin Buddhist Temple in Los Angeles. The title translates as “You only have one opportunity, so go for it.”
