Experience Japanese Summer Festival (Bon Odori) in Cebu This August 2016!

Picture yourself all dolled up in a Yukata enjoying your favorite Japanese treats (okonomiyaki, candy apple, and choco banana) or exploring activities such as goldfish / water balloon catching. How about watching a fireworks display while all wrapped up in the arms of the person you hold most dear. Sounds like a scene from a shoujo manga/anime? Here’s your chance to experience a real ‘matsuri’ right here in the Queen City of the South!
