The Third annual Shibuya Bon Odori took place in front of Tokyo's iconic 109 Department store on Sunday August 4th. The summer festival (matsuri) of Obon is a time to honour ancestors. Shibuya held the first Bon Odori dance in 2017, closing off busy streets to traffic so that hundreds of locals and tourist could wear summer-weight-kimonos, called yukata, and dance this traditional summer dance that accompanies the festival. The festival has grown bigger each year.
