JULY 2010

This week was West L.A. obon festival....an annual Japanese festival. My favorite "Elvis Trio" was there again this year...people love them.
Kyoko enjoying the food and dancing.

The Kimonos are always really diversified and beautiful...half the reason people come to watch the obon dancing.

not a bad way to spend a Saturday.

This is a temple in down town L.A....that me and Kyoko attended to commemorate George' first obon since he passed on.

This is one (of four) priests that resided over the ceremony.

Kyoko misses George...so she values such ceremonies dearly.

This was probably the largest temple I have seen in the U.S. to date. Here is Kyoko before the service.
