Kauai Bon Dance
Every year I get so excited as Bon Dance season approaches. It is a very unique experience. The music is very relaxing and fun, and the food booths offer such delicacies as saimin, flying saucers (which can only be found on Kauai), BBQ teriyaki on a stick, and lots, lots more! I also enjoy the very colorful kimonos the ladies wear. I'm not Japanese or Buddhist, but I make it a point to attend one or two of these dances per year. It's just plain good old fashioned family fun! Here are some wonderful photos and a video of the actual dancing from the Hanapape Bon Dance in June. Enjoy!
