Obon (お盆?) 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.



 

It will be like old times when the IREM Square still existed. There will be dancing, drumming, games, and photo opportunities.

I don't think "Ghost" is the correct term there since it points more toward the Chinese version. You should use "Bon" instead.

 

You also forgot to add [JP] to your title.

Was trying to get a translation. The full link looks like this! This should be awesome. Japan Home is amazing and hopefully we'll be getting events like these here at one point as well.

I really wish they would bring events like this here.  I know, it's a Japanese tradition, but it would be fun to learn about it.

Americans don't really celebrate Japanese Holidays and it wouldn't make sense in an NA setting. You can always join Jo for this fun event in Japan.  I guarantee you will love it. If there are free rewards, Jo will be the first to tell you.
