*Updated for Selangor BO*Hi minna-san~ since I just got the news about this year Bon-Odori so here's the informations & announcement na...About Bon-Odori...[spoiler=]Obon (ã?ç??) or just Bon (ç??) is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.Bon Odori (ç??è¸?ã??, meaning simply Bon dance) is an event held during Obon. It is celebrated as a reminder of the gratefulness one should feel toward one's ancestors.As Obon occurs in the heat of the summer, participants traditionally wear yukata, or light cotton kimonos. Many Obon celebrations include a huge carnival with rides, games, and summer festival food like watermelon.Original article from Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia....Odori#Bon_Odori[/spoiler]Every year, Malaysia Bon Odori Festivals also celebrated in Penang and at the Matsushita Corp Stadium in Shah Alam, Selangor. This celebration, which is a major attraction for the state of Selangor, is the brain child of the Japanese Expatriate & Immigrant's Society in Malaysia. In comparison to the celebrations in Japan, the festival is celebrated on a much smaller scale in Penang and Selangor, and is less associated with Buddhism and more with Japanese culture. Held mainly to expose locals to a part of Japanese culture, the festival provides the experience of a variety of Japanese food & drinks, art and dance. ***It also states certain rules for people to participate in such as...~ NO HIGH-HEELS in the dancing field~ Strictly NO SMOKING for designated areas~ Wear nothing impolite or offensive and also NO COSPLAYING.***

Well... I only got the info's from Penang side there, so any news from Selangor side one please just notice me la. ^^" (but it should be the same like last year kua...) Last year, the tourism Selangor has a website dedicated to inform the public on the updates of the upcoming Bon Odori (but it's invalid now...)*So, I'll update the info's & map once I got any news there... Thanks!*

Hey, can you like highlight(or change the colour like red) and make the font bigger for ''no cosplaying'' because some people just don't get it. I heard from my friends that they saw some people were cosplaying there last year swt. Thanks.

Prolly to show off their latest outfits. Could the event planner do something about the food stalls area? I've been there last year and I witnessed many people especially little kids breathing in all the sand and dust.

Of course can! >w< As long as u wear casual or traditional yukata. Anything like cosplay/vk/lolita/gothic will then be disrespectful. Think wearing a blingbling shining red cheongsam at someone's funeral @ Ching Ming. XDOh, and no high heels allowed too. >w<

[quote name='"kikuzakura"]XD XD XD OH LOOK FOOD!!! *rush ahead with flat shoes* I heard they sell out pretty quickly' date=' so speed is of essence! QUICK ATTACK![/quote']This I agree to. You guys better bring some water bottles for your own sake IF you CAN'T buy anything at the food stalls OR your having a hard time buying.

is the selangor date confirmed???i dont eat when i go to bon odori. i can barely find myself in all the sand and dust last year. @_@i think no matter how many times they've been told no cosplay and VK and yiddy yiddy yadda on Bon Odori there will still be idiots parading proudly with cosplay and VK and stuff. the organizers shouldnt even let those people dressed like that in in the first place.and i lost count of how many butt silts i saw last year at Bon Odori. gosh my eyes hurt man...
