ベトナム人インフルエンサーのYurin in Japanさんが、向島百花園で江戸時代から続く伝統行事「月見の会」を紹介してくれました。
This is the only flower garden in Tokyo surviving from the Edo era.
Mukojima Hyakkaen Gardens is a historical strolling garden in the Mukojima district of Sumida City. Having more than 2000 different trees and flowers, the garden lives up with the name of "a garden with a hundred flowers blooming throughout the four seasons." As it was an important place to top cultural figures of the time, the vibe is totally diffeent comparing to Koishikawa Korakuen and Rikugien which were built by feudal lords.
Annually around the end of summer, there will be a special Moon Viewing event hosted. Washi lanterns lit up the garden throughout the three-day event, combining with traditional Koto performances, tea ceremony sessions and other food services. Next year, make sure to come, get your dango and sit down watching the moon with us!
