Off The Beaten Path: Obon Ceremony in Hawaii


I took my son to his first Obon lantern ceremony on Oahu this summer.  For him, getting acquainted with his culture (he is mixed race, but 50% Japanese from yours truly) was one of my priorities.  I just bought a new camera and this is what surfaced after 100+ photos.  It totally captured the essence of that night!  The beautiful moonlit Pacific ocean waters decorated with the warm glow of lanterns representing each families ancestors, while my son helped them move along was enough to take my breath away!  I will never forget this moment!  ♥
