Continuing a tradition that has taken place at Osawa Pond next to Daikakuji since the Heian era, this event gives you the chance to float on a boat in the pond under a clear autumn moon. If the moon is at the right angle, you’ll see a moon in the sky and a counterpart on the still waters of the pond. There will also be a tea ceremony and musical performances.
