Cultural Significance of Tsukimi Festival in Japan
The Tsukimi Festival, also known as Otsukimi, is a traditional Japanese celebration that centers around the appreciation of the moon. This festival typically takes place the eighth month of the lunar calendar which is September
The primary focus of the Tsukimi Festival is to express gratitude for the autumn moon, which is believed to be the most beautiful and brightest of the year. The moon is seen as a symbol of harvest abundance and the changing of seasons.
Decorations: People celebrate Tsukimi by decorating their homes and gardens with various items that represent the moon, such as paper lanterns, pampas grass, and rabbit figurines. The rabbit is a common motif because of the belief that a rabbit resides on the moon, pounding mochi (rice cakes).
Moon-Viewing: Families and friends gather together to enjoy moon-viewing parties in their gardens or at local parks. They sit on tatami mats or special mats called "zabuton" while sipping tea and indulging in the moon-themed delicacies. Sometimes, poetry readings and storytelling are part of the celebration.
