Every year in the middle of August, Japan has a week of national holidays during a time known as お盆 (Obon). The Obon, or Bon tradition is a period or honoring the forefathers and ancestors of one's own family. Although in more recent years Obon has become more of an opportunity to travel for Japanese people, and international ticket rates soar during the period. But many people still return to their respective hometown's and honor the special Buddhist tradition with their family.
We here at Okayama Denim follow the Japanese holiday calendar, and will be in the midst of holidays this weekend & early next week. Please note that any orders placed during this period will only be processed and shipped on or after Thursday, August 17th. We apologize for any inconvenience caused to anyone that may have placed an order between August 11th - 16th. We appreciate your understanding!
Respect your elders. Happy Obon!
