Seasonal feature in our Japanese Garden:
"Autumn Foliage & Moon Viewing"

The Japanese custom of Momiji-gari, or autumn foliage viewing, may be considered the counterpart of cherry blossom viewing in spring. People go out to the mountains or other scenic areas to appreciate the colors of deciduous trees, and the beauty of their vivid red, orange, and yellow shades have been described in ancient literature works including many famous haiku poems.

Such a seasonal panorama can also be enjoyed in our Japanese garden. Although on a much smaller scale, the sight of turned leaves amid the beautifully balanced landscape of the garden or reflected in the water induces a gentle yet powerful emotion in the viewer's mind.

Autumn in Japan is also a time for tsukimi (moon viewing). The altitude of the moon and also the clear sky makes this time of year the most ideal to appreciate the beauty of this astronomical body closest to Earth. In particular, the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese calendar is called Jugoya in Japan and said to be the best day for moon viewing. This year, the day falls on October 4.

Why not take a peaceful stroll through our garden and indulge in a moment of serenity, enjoying the various vistas that nature bestows upon us.
