Obon Day is coming soon in Japan.
Obon,in Buddhism, it is believed that the spirits of family ancestors come back to this world during the obon period between July and August.
Now,it is generally considered to be four days from August 13 to 16
People visit and clean up their ancestors' graves before the obon period starts.
During obon day, family members make offerings of food, flowers and sweets.
On the last day, a fire is lit again to send the spirits to afterlife.
My hometown is Hiroshima, and every year I go back to my hometown to visit the graves. However, it will be a lonely obon this year, as it is difficult to move around because of Covid-19.
