San Jose Obon Annual Summer Festival Event in Japantown. This family event is a cultural event of authentic Japanese food, entertainment and traditional Japanese folk dancing.

Live Taiko in the streets of Japantown San Jose, one of the last three remaining authentic historical Japantowns in the USA, Japantown San Jose celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2015. 

About Obon

Obon is a time to remember, reflect and honor those who have paved the roads we travel today. Especially during these challenging times, we must acknowledge that much of our own courage, strength and compassion are rooted within our families and loved ones. During Obon, we remember our ancestors and express our gratitude for their sacrifices and lessons.

Though reluctant to mention, the Betsuin is working to replace the funds raised during the Obon Festival. Every year we enjoy the food, performances, activities and Bon dancing - many of you give countless hours of your time towards its success. This year we ask that you instead consider a donation to support the services of the Betsuin. A place that is at the center of so many of our community functions. You may choose to donate In Memory Of (remembering a loved one), In Honor Of (recognizing a special person/group) or with any sentiment you choose.

In the spirit of Obon and with gratitude, we hope you find this way of giving both meaningful and valuable. Please join together in commemorating Obon.
