Join Producers Tabitha and Sara as we are joined by guest Jenna Yokoyama to talk about Obon, a holiday that has been celebrated in Japan for hundreds of years and celebrated in America since the first Japanese immigrants arrived. What does it mean to the Japanese-American community? How is it celebrated in America vs. in Japan? We'll talk about this and how Japanese and Chinese people process death on the latest episode of Pacific Underground.
