Konnichiwa minna-san! We’re feeling like moonspeaking with the approaching 37th edition of Bon Odori, so don’t mind us.

Organised by The Japan Club of Kuala Lumpur and the Selangor State Office, Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia, Bon Odori is (God bless Wikipedia) a traditional style of dance performed during Obon. Obon is– eh, you might want to google the origin of Bon Odori, since we’re trying to make this short.

To put it simple, Bon Odori is a (religious) event that is associated with Buddhism in Japan. However, the Bon Odori that is organised here in Malaysia is more inclined to promoting Japanese culture (Bon Odori in Malaysia is mentioned in Wikipedia as well!). And that’s where EMiNA comes in — as the appreciators of Japanese culture! We managed to secure a bus for this trip, so good luck going there by yourself (summer brings out the tsundere in you). Details here:

Date: 6th July 2013 (Saturday)
Time: 4.00 – 10.30pm
Venue: Matsushita Stadium, Shah Alam
Fees: RM3 (member); RM5 (non-member)

Other than stumbling upon Japanese people and Japanese lolis (calm your inner pedos), you’ll also find all things Japanese here; it’s one of the biggest Japanese gathering outside Japan. There’s one thing tho — LIVITA. SERINGGIT. They know you’ll need more energy than usual to ogle at Japanese lolis, so energy drinks are dirt cheap there. It always has been.

And oh, EMiNA will be opening a booth for registration, so unless you want to drink 3 cans of energy drink *before* the main event starts, you might want to take a bus there. Find us at HB3 Food Court this week. We’ll be waiting!

Grab your yukatas, paperfans and Hannya masks (good luck with the stares), and prepare to go full weaboo (it’s okay to come out of the closet once a year)!

Hah~ I prefer shota if they have there :D

Not sure if I’ll be going but if the senpai’s are going. Then perhaps I should highly reconsider my choice.
