Japan's bon holiday is a way for people to pay their respects to their ancestors who have passed, and it typically falls around the mid-August period. For those who weren't able to visit Japan during that timeframe, there's a way to experience the atmosphere and dancing of a bon festival this November.

The Zabon Festival will be held for two days around Tokyo Tower, with a variety of traditional bon dances on display. Attendees will be able to check out some of Japan's most famous dances, including the Nishimonai Bon Odori, the Gujo Odori, and the Awa Odori.
