Family Reunions in Japan

I'm working on a fic and one of the plot points is that the main character is going to be attending a family reunion. He is a teenager, attending with his parents.

My main question is, other than family reunions of the kind that occurs between close relatives on New Year's or Obon, do the Japanese have family reunions where large number of close as well as distant relatives gather? If so, is there a traditional way they do this? I know this happens occasionally for weddings and funerals, but what about anything else?

I've searched "traditional family reunions" as well as "Japanese family reunions" and come up with nothing. Tips for searching and would be helpful also.
