十五夜 Tsukimi

十五夜 (the fifteenth night) means the night of the harvest full moon. It is the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese calendar.
Japanese enjoy the moon-viewing at 十五夜 with 月見団子(Tsukimi-Dango; Dangos especially made for moon-viewing).

ほとんど満月
Unfortunately, the typhoon hit Japan at 十五夜 of this year(September 30th). I took this photo at September 29th.
