|In okinawa,folks get together in front of
the family graves once a year on april
This is one of the okinawan traditional celemony named"si-mi(seimei-sai)".
Regendaly,the purpose of this is to pray for the ancestors and celebrate families prosperity.
Nowadays, the reason why we get together seems rather for our leasure.Chatting,eating and drinking with our ancestors.It's just like picnic.
It is not easy for us to take time and prepare many things (make and gring plenty of fiest,etc),neverthless, it is the enjoyable time of the year.
