O-Bon is a Buddhist memorial festival that dates back more than a thousand years. It is an annual reminder of the importance of family ties, of respect for those who have gone before, and of the brevity and preciousness of our lives together. Celebrated in August, O-Bon at the Portland Japanese Garden begins with a lively dance ceremony, followed by a candlelight vigil and the reading of names of loved ones who have passed during the year.
