When I think of autumn, I think of the moon

This month, there were a lot of days with bad weather, but we could see the moon very clearly this year.

Since Heian period, people have been obsessed with the moon illuminating the dark sky.

The people from high society would make their houses and gardens built especially to enjoy moon viewing, and would enjoy songs about the moon.

Even nowadays, people would feel moved by the beauty of the moon.

When I was a child, my father would tell me that there was a rabbit on the moon, and that the rabbit was holding a mochi cake (rice cake).

Watching the moon would always remind me of my beloved father.
