Tsukimi Chakai, moon viewing at Issoan,
The night was clear after a weekend of rain for the moon viewing at Issoan. The chakai was virtual and 15 guests attended.
Guests were escorted through the Nijiriguchi to view the tokonoma. The scroll reads, “Mizu wo kikusureba tsuki te ni ari,” or Scoop water and the moon is in your hands.

I hope everyone had a good time.
How nice to hear from you. I just sent you a messenger text.
What an absolutely lovely posting & photos.
In the Southern Hemisphere we watched an orange full moon rise in the dramatic Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa.
No ocha but a special month with my daughter, her newborn & family.
