Two Obon Festivals Nearby

From Rob Kadota comes this info on two Japanese events.  Disclaimer: We are listing them as cultural events even though they have a religious aspect –  “Ever been to one of our local Obon Festivals? They’re happening this weekend and next weekend in Pacific/West LA area. I highly recommend you check one out. It’s a great community event and all are welcome.”
