Tsukimi-Moon viewing

Tsukimi-Moon viwing

Tsukimi,Moon viewing ,is an annual Japanese event in appreciation of the full moon.
In the Orient there is a custom of appreciating the moon.

On the night of August 15 by the lunar calendar,
the full moon floating in the clear autumn sky is very beautiful.
So Dumplings offered to the moon(Tsukimi-dango),Japanese pampas grass,seasonal fruits
set out by the window offered to the moon.

The prototype of Tsukimi for the Japanese who are a farming people,
is to liken the moon to a divinity and pay for abundant subsequent harvests of ripened rice.

And when the Japanese see the full moon,
they see an image of a rabbit making rice cakes.
