The Last Dance



Published:


Dancers and drummers circle the yagura, or central tower, at a July bon dance at the Jikoen Hongwanji Mission in Kalihi. September marks the end of obon season in Hawaii, and you have at least two opportunities this month to slip on your hapi coat and kick up your heels in honor of our ancestors: the 25th annual Okinawan Festival (Sept. 1, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Kapiolani Park), believed to be Hawaii’s largest bon dance, and the Autumn Matsuri (Sept. 15, 5 p.m. Hawaii Okinawan Center, 94-587 Ukee St.). Visit www.okinawanfestival.com for more information.
