Moon-Viewing (Tsukimi)

Hi dear friends, Tonight is moon viewing in Japan and I would like to introduce and explain about this autumn festival!

Tsukimi or moon-viewing refers to Japanese festivals honoring the autumn moon, a version of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The celebration of the full moon typically takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese calendar; the waxing moon is celebrated on the 13th day of the ninth month. These days normally fall in September and October of the modern solar calendar.

Tsukimi traditions include displaying decorations made from Japanese pampas grass (susuki) and eating rice dumplings called Tsukimi dango in order to celebrate the beauty of the moon and  also implies a prayer for good harvest with their allusion to Japan’s premier member of grass family,Rice.Seasonal produce are also displayed as offerings to the moon.

So,

Here is our Tsukimi decoration:

And honestly for me Pampas grasses  viewing !!!is much more interesting! 🐾😸🐾

Ah, Violet is calling me again and and telling me not to bite or touch pampas grasses!


Have a beautiful day, night dear friends and if you have full moon in the sky, make a wish and may all your wishes come true…..
