Otsukimi

How are you? Hope you're all well.

So we are enjoying the full moon tonight.



Tsukimi or Otsukimi, literally moon-viewing, refers to Japanese festivals honoring the autumn moon. We celebrate the autumn full moon.

As looking up the full moon, theMoon rabbit in folklore is a rabbit that lives on the moon.(because of its crater).

This cute sweet (manjyu in Japan)which i found in the town looks like as a rabbit.


Still terrible  heat summer now. Where is the Autumn?
Take care all!

Fireworks in the rain..

Hello Friends! How are you enjoying your season? We're finally having the last of summer. Feels to be going to be cooler day by day than past a couple of months.

We saw fireworks show in my town by the river.
It is the thing of summer. So many people were there to enjoy looking up the fireworks in the cloudy and gray sky.
( Pictures is too bad in the rain.  )

We can see a lot of small food boothes along the river.


 .. dificult to be taken firework photos though..and this is the one what left in my camera.:( 

See you soon.
Take care!:)

Love*

An Old Thing of Summer and Wabi-Sabi


These pictures are one of the old thing of summer in Japan called Tsurishinobu - a kind of a hanging plant with a bell. These plants are ferns on the old branch or rock.

Gardeners used to present for the owners of gardens in those days.
Tsurishinobu are enjoyed to be hanged by the entrance and windows at the house. And it has a bell sounds like as a windbell.  The bell is also a charm .Feels good and cool.
They didnt have any air-conditioners just seeing and hearing, but feel cool.
This is the one of  Japanese Wabi-Sabi.


See you soon!
