maui obon schedule 2018

A Buddhist tradition finds new life every summer on Maui. June marks the opening of Maui’s obon season, when quiet Buddhist temples welcome revelers.

At its core, obon is a time to honor the deceased. Graves are cleaned and prayers offered— yet it is not a somber occasion. The Technicolor festival is marked by vibrant kimono, bright lanterns, and booming taiko drums that awaken and welcome ancestors back to this world. Gray-haired ladies in kimono sway and step alongside little girls in Hello Kitty yukata, dancing ‘round and ‘round the yagura (tower).
