Foyle Obon 2018

We were delighted to celebrate O-Bon 2018 at the Playtrail on Saturday June 9th, which we transformed into ‘Little Tokyo’!

Some of the brilliant activities on offer were – Japanese games, Manga Art, origami, martial arts, calligraphy and or course beautiful Japanese music, dance and amazing Taiko drumming.

As the darkness fell, the evening culminated in the spectacular Toro Nagashi Lantern Ceremony.

Many thanks to the Big Lottery Fund Awards for All programme and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for their support.
