Most years as far as I know the moon is covered by the clouds and today it was pouring and again the moon is hiding herself. But it would not be a mooncake festival post if I don't at least insert an image of the moon so here it is.
|Full moon sitting on top the Tokyo Tower, Japan|
I took this photo the last time I visited Tokyo Tower and it was a perfect moonlit might with the moon sitting right perfectly on top the Tokyo Tower.
Mooncake festival must of course have mooncake. It come in all sorts of packaging and I think the packaging cost more than the cake themselves.

You have all sorts of typesof moon cake and the above pictures I have shown two types. For the children, the best time of the mooncake festival is the lantern playing time.

|The whole neighbourhood join in the fun|

|Traditional lanterns are still the best|
Happy Mooncake Festival to all from Apharock.
