What We Do

OBON SOCIETY is a humanitarian movement that heals hearts and connects broken families. We accomplish this by returning personal family heirlooms to their relatives.

Everyday Americans discover battlefield souvenirs stored among their possessions.

OBON SOCIETY receives these items and our scholars search for clues that lead to the family.

When relatives are found, the items are returned, at no charge, to the family in Japan.

OBON SOCIETY has a vast network of scholars and also connections within government agencies that allows nation-wide searches for family members of missing soldiers.

OBON SOCIETY is a gift dependent
charitable initiative. Your generosity
helps make our work possible.
