Full moon party!!

We had a Otsukimi party on 13th September 2016.

Otsukimi is a seasonal festival to enjoy the moon on the night of August 15th, on the Chinese calendar.
Otsukimi means “viewing the moon”.


In 2016, August 15th on the Chinese calendar is September 15th on the Gregorian calendar.

In Japan, people decorate with silver grasses and offer rice dumplings to the moon.
It is said that silver grass can house a Shinto God, and acts as a charm against evil.

People offer the rice dumplings in appreciation for the harvest of grains.

It was cloudy so we could not see a moon but we enjoyed a party.

We had a Japanese curry and rice dumpling.
Everyone ate a lots.

Thank you very much for join us.

You can check all pictures taken during the party on our Facebook!!!
