Bon Odori is a yearly Japanese/American Friendship Festival held in many towns of Japan. Autumn got to learn the dances with Grandma & Grandpa and wear her own yukata.

Autumn and her swim-buddy, Natalie.

Heidi decided she really did want to dance. Notice her "towel" doo-rag. Nothing Japanese about that, but she thought it was cool. And she loved being close to Grandpa.

Lots of people danced in a circle on the ground around this platform. But each dance had a featured dance group that danced on the platform. Autumn did three dances up there.

The drummers were really cool so friendly that they let Autumn have a go. The drummer next to her coached her through almost an entire song!

    Oh, she looks so cute! (And Mom and Dad look like they were enjoying sharing that with her.)
