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!

Hello - it's very hot here in France, too! I have been enjoying looking at the moon recently and I will think of you and the Tsukimi when I see it tonight! Thank you for sharing this festival with us.

I like the moon rabbit folklore, Mami!
We're getting our first cooler days now. Autumn will be here soon.
