Otsukimi, or Japanese Moonviewing, is the ancient tradition of holding parties to view the harvest moon. The garden honors this tradition with a unique night festival offering Japanese entertainment, food, customs and activities for the community to enjoy. Patrons will enjoy strolling all areas of the garden decorated with beautiful handmade bamboo lanterns, calligraphy, flower and light art installations. Telescopes will be provided by Phoenix Astronomical Society for star and moon gazing. While strolling enjoy our bar serving sake cocktails, beer, wine and more. Or grab a bite to eat from several Japanese food and dessert vendors. Musoan Tea House and tea garden will be open for admission to view special performances and tea cafe. Guests will be served authentic Japanese matcha tea by hostesses in traditional kimono. This space is limited, please see the Tea House gate at the event for admission and pricing.
