Bon Dance July 2, 2022After two years of canceled Bon Dance, in 2022 we are bringing back Bon Dance to Puna Hongwanji Buddhist Temple.  We are easing our way back in so having ONLY ONE NIGHT of Bon Dance this year.  We plan to have our Bon Dance on Saturday, July 2, 2022.

The Hatsubon Service will be at 5:00 p.m.  Hatsubon families will be notified by Rev. Satoshi Ka’imipono Tomioka.

Around 6:30 p.m. Puna Taiko will play a few numbers.

Around 7:00 p.m. the long awaited Bon Dance will begin.  The Bon Dance will end at 10:00 p.m.

If you need a refresher on the dance moves there will be two practices one practice in the month of June.  Please bring your uchiwa (fan) and tenugui (towel).
