Marvel of the Moon, Tokugawaen Moon Viewing Event

This event has ended.
  • Marvel of the Moon, Tokugawaen Moon Viewing Event

Tokugawaen is open at night for the "jugoya (fifteenth night)" and the "jusanya (thirteenth night)" on August 15 and September 13 of the lunar calendar. However, the schedule changes every year.
It is said that viewing the moons on both the jugoya and jusanya brings good luck. A decorated Japanese-style boat is lit up and floats upon Ryusenko pond for the moon viewing. Take in the sight of the beautiful moon together with a nighttime Japanese garden.

Spot Information



Tokugawaen is a Japanese garden with walkways winding around a central pond symbolizing the ocean. The waterfall and steams utilize the differences in elevation to create an enjoyable, dynamic landscape. The park was once a residence of the old samurai manor can still be seen in the black gate at the entrance.
