Tsukimi is a Japanese festival honoring the first full moon of Autumn. The celebration takes place on the 14th of September on the lunisolar calendar this year.
Manju is a popular traditional Japanese confection.
There are many varieties of manju, but most have an outside made from flour, rice powder and buckwheat and a filling of an (red bean paste), made from boiled azuki beans and sugar.
