Bon Odori (Japanese: 盆踊り), meaning simply Bon dance, is a style of dancing performed during Obon. Originally a Nenbutsu folk dance to welcome the spirits of the dead, the style of celebration varies in many aspects from region to region.
The Austin Japanese Minyo Group was formed in 2011 with the goal of introducing the folk dances from various Japanese regions to the Greater Austin community through performances at local schools, festivals, events and more!
