Bon visits

This is the time of the Bon festival in Japan.  It is during this time that ancestors' spirits return to their families.  There are traditional dances and candles to encourage them to return.  It is a beautiful time in the heat of August;  I saw a bit of it last year, when I arrived in Japan.  But this year, I'm in America visiting my family.
