- Summer Obon Holidays
It is the start of August and there is Obon holidays in this month.
The Obon festival is an annual Japanese holiday which commemorates and remembers deceased ancestors.
It is believed that their spirits return at this time to visit their relatives.
It is observed from the 13th to 16th day of this month in 2018.
However, according to the solar calendar the 7th month is July but according to the lunar calendar, the 7th month is August.
So, Obon is celebrated at different times in different regions depending on which calendar is observed.
By the way,I would like to inform you that our office will be closed from 11th to 15th August.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you.
Hope you all have a great time.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
