Obon Festival Mahalo
After a three-year hiatus, Guzeiji Soto Mission of Molokai recently held its Obon festivities on their temple grounds in Kaunakakai. Many people came to remember and honor their ancestors as they ate chicken hekka and danced the night away! We would like to thank all who participated and made Obon 2023 a huge success: Rev. Shuji Komagata, GSMM members and their families, Somei Taiko, Hawaii Matsuri Taiko, Derrick Iwata and dancers, Royce Villa, Shirley Rawlins, Jean Ribao, Charlene and Bull Dela Cruz, Tracey Apoliona, Bright and Dio Youngstrom, Puni Ignacio, Sherman Napoleon and Jonathan Jefts. We are very grateful and appreciative of your continued generosity and kindness. Congratulations to our lucky number winners (top four): Tracey Akiyama, Lawai’a Chow, Brent Hamasaki, and Jon Brito! Hope to see you all next summer!
