Bon Odori lights up Shah Alam Sports Complex

THE STAR – It was a colourful affair at the Bon Odori celebrations yesterday, which took place after a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Participants were seen decked out in traditional Japanese Yukata summer attire during the event.

With an estimated 35,000 participants, the Shah Alam Sports Complex was packed, with many setting up picnics surrounding the main stage, known as the Yagura.

The annual festival had a large variety of Japanese food and drinks sold at booths alongside traditional dance and drum performances.
