We made a rice dumplings called Tsukimi Dango in order to celebrate the beauty of the moon.

Tsukimi or Otsukimi, literally moon-viewing, also known as Jugoya, refers to Japanese festivals honoring the autumn moon, a version of the Mid-Autumn Festival.  The celebration of the full moon, a version of the Mid-Autumn Festival.  The cerebration of the full moon typically takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese calendar; the waxing moon is celebrated on the 13th day of the ninth month.

Nagashi Somen means Flowing Somen.

Somen is Japanese noodle made of wheat flour and salts, which is very thin and white.

Flowing Somen is called “Nagashi Somen” or Spemn Nagashi” on Japanese.

At Flowing Somen.  Somen are put in water flowing along a long bamboo gutter.

You catch the noodles with your chopsticks, dip them in a cool broth, and eat them.

Flowing Somen brings you fun and cools taste at party lunch in summer season.
