Experience the romance and mystery of the Moonviewing Festival. Start the evening with a peaceful stroll through the lantern-lit Garden.

Take in authentic Japanese music including shakuhachi and koto harp. The koto harp will be performed by koto master Mitsuki Dazai and the shakuhachi by Larry Tyrrell.

Finally, observe a quiet tea ceremony in the Kashintei Tea House by presenters from Kashintei Kai Tea Society.

This year’s event will feature small bites by our presenting sponsor (to be announced). Tickets include these delectables as well as sips of Jasmine Pearl Tea, Joto Sake, and Sapporo Beer.

Proceeds from Moonviewing support the Garden’s cultural and educational programming.

Please no tripods or flash photography.
