Kangetsu no Yube: Full Moon Viewing

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.

Boarding tickets for the boats are timed on the hour from 5pm to 8pm are sold in advance (from around 3pm) on the day. Entry costs ¥500 and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
