Initially planned, my friends and I wanted to spend our Friday ( August 7, 2015) lazing off and thinking what to have for dinner in my house. Apparently, due to some unexpected circumstance, we decided to check Bon Odori Day 1 out. Bon Odori, meaning simply " Bon dance" is an event held during Bon Festival, the Japanese Buddhist holiday to honor the departed spirits of one's ancestors. It was held in D' Family Park in Talamban, Cebu and its purpose was to deepen the friendship between Japan and Philippines through cultural exchange. The entrance fee was only PHP10 for the two-day festivities ( August 7 & 8).
