Join Lahaina Hongwanji's 2018 obon festival, a celebration of Japanese culture, religion, and ancestry! Experience obon, a summer tradition brought to Hawaii by Japanese immigrants who sought to honor their ancestors and bring a bit of their Japanese roots to their new home. Enjoy the company of friends, family, and the community as you spend a night of eating and dancing together!

Since the years since its founding in 1904, the Lahaina Hongwanji Mission has become the focal point of worship. This worship and fellowship have been supported by social activities such as Holiday Seasons’ festivities, Bazaars, Obon Festivals, mochi-pounding, crafts, karaoke singing, monthly memorial services, seminars, Dharma School, and much more. The mission held commemorative events such as the 75th Anniversary Celebration, the 80th Anniversary celebration, and, in October of 2004, the Centennial Celebration. Lahaina Hongwanji has been a place where people gather to pause and reflect, to work and play.

Friday, 8/10 - 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, 8/11 - 7:30 p.m.
