   Hi, guys!! This year’s “Otsukimi” is come. Today, we have very very clear sky, so, we can see soooooooooooooo beautiful Full moon. We hold Otsukimi(お月見) on 15th of August by our old calendar(旧暦).

   I took its picture. And I remember a child song “月(moon)” like this.

  1. Detadeta tsukiga
    出た出た 月が
    Maruimarui manmarui
    丸い丸い まん丸い
    Bonnoyōna tsukiga
    盆のような 月が
  2. Kakureta kumoni
    隠れた 雲に
    Kuroikuroi makkuroi
    黒い黒い まっ黒い
    Suminoyōna kumoni
    墨のような 雲に
  3. Matadeta tsukiga
    また出た 月が
    Maruimarui manmarui
    丸い丸い まん丸い
    Bonnoyōna tsukiga
    盆のような 月が

   If you want, listen to the song.

   In second Lyrics, he is covered with thick clouds. But, this has never happened tonight. Who is he? He is the moon. Don’t think it is my mistake. In Japan the god of moon is a man named 月讀命(Tsukuyomi no mikoto). (^^)
