Event

Moon Viewing
Seattle Japanese Garden presents

MOONVIEWING
(tsukimi no kai)

Saturday, September 1, 2012
7:00 to 10:00 p.m.
(Gate will open at 6:00 pm)

Enjoy the Seattle Japanese Garden after-hours at Moon Viewing. During Moon Viewing, the garden is atmospherically lit with lanterns, luminaries and floating boats. In Japan, o-tsukimi or moon viewing festivals welcome the arrival of the full moon. Celebrate Moon Viewing at the Seattle Japanese Garden with performances by local artists.

Performances will include LUNAR HARE, a dance by Joan Laage and Consuelo Gonzalez (Kogut Butoh); classical and contemporary koto music by SILK STRINGS; a selection of traditional Japanese dances by the FUJIMA DANCE ENSEMBLE; Okinawan folk and traditional music by MAKO AND MUNJURU.

HAIKU NORTHWEST will read haiku inspired by the beauty of the moon. Come prepared with a haiku of your own, and enter our Moon Viewing poetry contest! Winning poets will have their haiku read during Moon Viewing, and will recieve a prize.

View the full moon (weather permitting) through telescopes provided by the SEATTLE ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY.

Seattle TANKOKAI will present a Tsukimi Chakai (Moon Viewing Tea) at 6, 7 & 8 p.m. in the Shoseian Teahouse. Tickets for the Tsukimi Chakai are $10 (plus $15 event admission) by advance reservation on Brown Paper Tickets.
