Jizo-bon, a traditional event born in Kyoto

The fun for children in Kyoto at the end of summer is Jizo-bon.

Jizo statues in the town are neatly remade and many sweets are served
to the children gathered.


Each town has its own characteristics such as lottery, beadroll, Bon Festival dance and so on,
and neighbors gather in large groups.


In addition, the word "Manmanchan, an" which is chanted when holding hands with a Jizo statue
is a word unique to Kyoto and Osaka that expresses familiarity with the statue.


I want this to be inherited along with traditional events.
