〜Some kind of family reunion お盆の準備〜

During the Obon period, usually in mid-August, it is believed that the ancestral spirits come back to their family.  Today I bought some offerings to the ancestors including sweets, fruits and vegetables.  I heard a story that goes fruits of a plant called “Chinese lanterns” should serve to guide the deceased to their house safely.

今日はお盆のお供えの用意をしました。鬼灯はご先祖さまが迷子にならずに帰れるように提灯の役をすると聞きました。
