O-Bon: Honoring Ancestral Spirits

Please note this event is confirmed, but the details and RSVP dates are currently being finalized. Please check back often and thank you for your patience. 

Take part in the quiet reverence of the toro-nagashi ( 灯籠流し / lantern floating) with Reverend Kodachi.

O-Bon: Honoring Ancestral Spirits is a special gathering for Portland Japanese Garden members. Light lanterns in memory of loved ones, and set them afloat in the Upper Pond near the Moon Bridge. It is a truly unique and moving ceremony.

RSVP Required.
