Good Moon on the Rise

The moon is sad, according to the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Orange, says Erykah Badu. Made of cheese, sings Rotary Connection. Kinda depressing, huh? Well, during Japan’s autumn Otsukimi celebration, the full moon signifies the end of summer and promotes positive vibes. On that note, the Japanese Friendship Garden/RoHoEn hosts its annual Moonviewing Festival, which features live music, a Japanese marketplace, poetry readings, and guided tours of the tea garden and house.
