This dance involved special wooden clappers, and the temple had some extras for those of us that failed to bring our own. However, many people snapped their fingers in place of flicking a clapper, as you can see in this picture.

The 2007 Higashi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple Obon was held on Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29. For more information on the temple, please visit The Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple website.
