The cool clear Autumn air is traditionally the time for tsukimi – viewing the moon. It’s really just a good excuse to have a boozy picnic in the evening while the weather is still warm.
Tsukimi at the historical Mukojima-Hyakkaen Garden will include cultured performances on the koto as well as tea ceremonies and lantern painting. Entrance to the gardens is ¥150, and if you want to participate in the tea ceremony it will set you back ¥2,000. Numbers for the lantern painting are also limited.
The garden usually closes at dusk, so this is a unique opportunity to explore the garden at night. Scattered throughout the garden are washi lanterns with poems to the moon.
