SAN JOSE — The familiar sights and sounds drifted through Japantown on Saturday as they do every summer: fresh sushi and teriyaki. Japanese folk music. The rumble of drums and the chatter of curious children. But the centuries-old celebration on North 5th Street was just as much for the dead as it was for the living. The Obon festival — one of Japan’s largest and most significant religious events — is a Buddhist custom honoring the spirits of one’s ancestors. The joyous event is marked by family gatherings, Japanese dishes and a traditional dance known as bon odori.

SAVING THE DANCING PIG: The Preservation Action Council has launched an effort to save the Stephen’s Meat “Dancing Pig” sign on Montgomery Street. While the sign isn’t in imminent danger, it’s in the path of whatever potential development Google may have in mind and, in any case, it’s been deteriorating for years and needs help. Bassian Farms, current owner of the Stephen’s Meat Products brand, has donated seed funding to the campaign, and Young Electric Sign Company is working with PACSJ to repair the sign’s neon lights and power supply. The sign, with its neon “dancing” pig, was originally made by Electrical Products Corp. of California in the 1950s.
