In 2018, 25 August is the Ghost festival 中元節. In Japan, there is a similar custom which is called Obon お盆. It’s not a scary event like Ghost festival 中元節, but the meaning is mostly the same.
In this season, we believe our ancestors come back to their family, and the living families get together and hold a memorial service for the ancestors.
When we have this event, living people bring the gifts for other families to cherish each other.
We call this gift as Ochugen お中元. It’s said that this custom was introduced to Japan in ancient time.
Do you remember the movie “CoCo”? It’s based in Mexican culture. Countries located in very different place have the same custom. The world is quite impressive.
Let’s send a gift for your families! We offer two promotions.
