Everyone is welcome at an o-bon festival, regardless of religious background or ethnicity.
As such, each temple's festival — and there are dozens throughout summer — is often well attended.
The Japanese observance of o-bon — Hawaii shortens the word to "bon" — honors the spirits of family members who have passed away.
You'll find o-bon festivals slated for just about every weekend at Hawaii hongwanji missions and temples, from June through August.
