Japanese fans of Elvis Presley fold their hands in prayer after placing offerings of juice and cigarettes on a bronze statue of the "king of rock and roll" in Tokyo on Aug. 16, 2002, 25 years after the singer's passing. The anniversary of Presley's death coincides with Japan's o-bon festival of spirits returning to this world, during which offerings of food and other items are made to the dead.
