Japan Local Customs: 477 reviews and 616 photos
Japanese traditionally celebrate the full moon on 15th August by the luna calender (it actually comes around 15th of September).
Dumplings made from rice(odango) and susuki (japanese pamapas grass) are offered to the Full Moon .
It is thought a event for praying the rich harvest of rice. The full moon in the clear autumn sky appear especiallly beautiful.
And the moon hidden slightly by thin cloud is also elegant.
