A festival held to celebrate the harvest moon and bountiful harvests in Nagasaki's Chinatown on mid-autumn according to the old lunar calendar when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.

A figure of Gekka Rojin, a god famous for aiding love and matchmaking, is erected in Minato Park, and countless stalls and stands create an exotic atmosphere for visitors to enjoy.

Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
