The Japanese Summer Festival: Bon Odori 2016 that was held last August 12-13 at Sugbu Grounds, South Road Properties (SRP), Cebu City, Philippines was a huge success with around 22,000 attendees, imagine the ocean of people! For only 20.00 pesos, it is more than worthy for a night of awesome cultural experience.
It’s my first time to attend Bon Odori and for a girl who’s been in love with Japan, attending a festival is a must right?
I came with my kawaii friends Vanessa and Ate Jane. The weather was so fine at that night too. It was really an event to remember for me, surrounded by things I dreamed about, authentic Japanese food, merchandise, cosplay and like-minded people! By the way, I went on a solo adventure on Day 1, it was supposed to be just surveying the area and directions because I’m new in Cebu, I’m afraid I might get lost. I ended up buying lotsa stuff on Day 1.
I wasn’t able to take a lot of pictures because I’m very overwhelmed with the festive the environment is. Please bear with my photos.
There are a lot of booths and fun activities that the festival prepared for festival goers.
