A traditional and merry Japanese festival that is celebrated with dance and lively drum performances to welcome the homecoming of ancestral spirits. This festival is a Japanese Buddhist observance that honours the spirit of ancestors, who return once a year to visit their families. The carnival-like atmosphere at Esplanade is made even merrier with stalls selling a variety of local and Japanese food, fireworks display, Japanese souvenirs, lively performances and games.
