4/21/2024 – Lantern Song – Bonbu Stories

Dear BCO Members, Community, & Friends,
This is Rev. Harry Bridge – I wanted to let you know about a new song/video that was just released this past weekend. It is called Lantern Song, and it is by Bonbu Stories, a group which includes BCO Jr. YBA alum Miharu Okamura!

Please check out the video on YouTube – I was not involved in the making of the song but I really want this video to go viral! And remember to hit the like button!

Lantern Song official music video

There is also an Obon Dance to go along with the song – click on the link in the video description.

Thank you!

Rev. Harry
