Obon Festival Song (4K)

Obon Matsuri is special in so many ways. It’s the day Japanese remember the ones they love and are no more. A special tea ceremony, dance, drumming and floating lanterns they are all part of offerings to the loved dead souls. Watch this song on the special day!

It’s Obon Matsuri!

Play back your memories,

From long before,

Of those who’re no more.

 

Chorus

It’s Obon Matsuri!

There’s a special tea!

It’s Obon Matsuri!

Join the Obon Odori

 

Burn incense sticks,

Serve tea in cups that clink,

Some rice in a bowl,

For the loved dead soul.

 

Chorus

It’s Obon Matsuri!

There’s a special tea!

It’s Obon Matsuri!

Join the Obon Odori!

 

Set floating lanterns free,

Gently into the sea,

Towards the great light,

Ablaze and shining bright.

 

Chorus

It’s Obon Matsuri!

There’s a special tea!

It’s Obon Matsuri!

Join the Obon Odori!

 

All Japanese,

July sometime in the East,

And August in the west,

Come together for the fest.

 

Memories are precious,

Filled with love and wishes,

Obon Matsuri,

Has been around for centuries.

 

 

Chorus

It’s Obon Matsuri!

There’s a special tea!

It’s Obon Matsuri!

Join the Obon Odori!
