The Moon Viewing Tradition in Japan

by Mari

On particular night in September we have tradition of the moon viewing. (September 27 this year)  We decorate our table with Japanese pampas grass, a stack of small rice powder balls and autumn harvest such as sweet potatoes and taros.  Family get together and appreciate a beautiful full moon.

Hi, I'm Mari. Welcome to Japan!

I'm a government certified English tour guide. I would love to help you discover more of
Japan. I went to high school in Georgia, USA and studied Biology at State University of New York. I love traveling and meeting people.

In my tour, it's my pleasure to offer a mini culture lecture such as folding paper(making a crane out of a piece of paper) and kanji of its fascinating structure. Also, please let me know if you wish to arrange a tour for your own interest.
