It’s Obon Festival this weekend! Many Japanese families come together during this time to celebrate at carnivals or festivals and eating…A LOT! Particularly here in Kyoto we have the renowned Daimonji Festival on Aug 16th! The side of 5 mountains are burned with giant Japanese kanji characters as a symbol of “sending-off” our ancestors’ spirits back to the spirit world.
So, our office will be CLOSED Aug 15-16 (Monday and Tuesday) to pay our respects. No orders will be delivered during this period. But don’t worry! - we’re offering 20% OFF ALL ORDERS from Aug 13th until Aug 17th 10am JST!!! Be sure to use the code: OBON20 as you checkout!
Don’t miss out!!! Happy Obon! ^^
