Cool evening breezes are a sign that autumn is here. For five days beginning Friday, Sankeien, a Japanese garden in Yokohama is encouraging visitors to engage in a seasonal pastime: tsukimi (moon-viewing).
The 175,000-sq. meter garden, created in the 1920s by Yokohama silk businessman Sankei Hara, will extend its hours until 9 p.m. through Tuesday. It will have concerts daily, with musicians including traditional koto harp players, a Baroque ensemble and specialists of gagaku (ancient Imperial court music).
