We’ve joined up with the Japan America Society of Washington, DC to have a party in the beautiful Textile Museum gardens with sake tastings, mochi (rice cake) making, origami, koto music, bon dancing, and yukata dress-up for kids.
Enjoy a picnic or pre-order an obento boxed dinner, and watch the harvest moon rise.
