Temple celebrates Obon Festival

The Mountain View Buddhist Temple welcomed the community to its annual Obon Festival over the weekend with food, crafts and performances celebrating Japanese culture and traditions. Since the temple's completion in 1957, it has been hosting the Obon Festival at its location on Stierlin Road and North Shoreline Boulevard. The festival, which includes the traditional Bon Odori dance and taiko drumming, is meant to honor ancestors and the dead through a joyful celebration of life.
