Moon-gazing

Yesterday was Chuushu-no-meigetsu (中秋の名月: the harvest moon).

The custom of viewing the moon on the day (August 15th on the lunar calendar) was originally introduced from China. People offer the full moon sake and dango (a kind of dumpling) decorated with Japanese pampas grass and enjoy the autumn evening.

I left the venue of a conference and headed to Kyoto.

A "Tsukimi (月見: moon-gazing)" event was held at Yasaka Shrine (八坂神社).

The forecast for yesterday was rain, but it was off the mark.
