2015 Welcome Back Tsukimi!

Join us in wishing an “okaerinasai” to the recently returned JETs at our Tsukimi picnic! Friends and family are welcome to join us for taiko, tabemono (food), hot tea and, of course, full moon viewing!

When: Saturday, October 24th, from late afternoon until after sundown.

Where: Chautauqua Park in Boulder, the lower park area near Baseline Road and Kinnekinic Road.

We’re going to have this pot luck style so please bring a dish to share. Hot tea will be provided, but feel free to bring the beverage of your choice. It is autumn in Colorado, so don’t forget temperatures can drop fast especially after sundown!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

As some of you may know, in Japan on a full moon evening in the fall they celebrate tsukimi or 月見 (lit. moon viewing). We would like to do the same and enjoy a nice potluck picnic at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, where amazing views can be seen!

So grab your picnic blankets, Japanese okashi (snacks), tsukimi dango (rice dumplings), Japanese sake, small snacky items, etc and meet us at the park to celebrate a cool, crisp autumnal full moon evening together, Japanese style! RMJETAA WILL BE PROVIDING FREE JAPANESE FOOD AS LONG AS YOU BRING A SMALL DISH OF SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE! =)

This event is free and open to the public so feel free to invite any interested friends and family!! Please DON’T bring any glass bottles, as the park doesn’t allow it. The park officially closes at 11pm.

We hope to see you and others there! =)
