Bon Odori at Oregon Buddhist Temple

Hi all

Welcome to our new gathering place on the OBT website.    


Sunday bon odori is from 1 – 3pm  in the basement of the Oregon Buddhist Temple and pre Obon practices in July /Aug are at 7 pm in the basement.   Dates in the list.   Lessons are free and everyone is welcome.   This is dancing for joy and community – not performance.    Sunday bon odori is very causal and a lot of fun. 


We are starting to work on the dances we will be doing for this years Obon.   So if you want a “sneak peek” please join us.
