Moon Viewing Chakai 2023

On September 30th, 2023, the Urasenke Tankokai San Diego Association celebrated Otsukimi, which means “Moon Viewing”. It is an autumn festival in Japan celebrating the Harvest Moon. The venue was at the Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ in San Diego. Our Urasenke members and family gathered around to enjoy a light dinner and tea under the moon. The weather conditions were rainy, but the moon showed beautifully towards the end of the gathering and disappeared in the clouds shortly after. It was a very memorable gathering and we look forward to it again next year.
