Me and my husband Patrick went to an event on September 12, 2011 called
O-Tsukimi Moonviewing at the Japanese Gardens in Portland Oregon.
You can see the light in the lantern. The Moonviewing is one of the only events where they light all the lanterns in the gardens for everyone to enjoy.
Just before moon rise.
Koto Zither by Mitsuki Dazai while we ate some tasty food and sipped saki.
Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute by Kodo Araki VI was amazing and very haunting.
Here is the moon rise. We also watched a Japanese tea ceremony by Kashintei Kai.
