Notice regarding Summer “Obon” Holiday Closing Schedules

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABetween 11th of July and 16th of July is Obon week in Japan.

And we have holidays this week.

Obon or just Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one’s ancestors.
This Buddhist-Confucian custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors’ graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars.

It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.
For specific dates regarding these closures, please view the information below.


Musuvi will be closed from 12th/July to 15th/July.

All the manufacturers will be closed from 11th/July to 16th/July.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these closings.

Your understanding is appreciated.
