I got out to the Seattle Japanese Garden to do some 紅葉狩り (momijigari, maple viewing or “maple hunting”) on October 28. Momiji season is a few weeks earlier in Seattle than in Ishikawa. The garden, which is part of the Washington Park Arboretum, was built in the Japanese style in 1960 by Junji Iida.

I love Tokyo words with a Kaga accent
On Sept. 22-23, Kanazawa’s Higashi Betsuin and Nishi Betsuin Temples are hosting a light-up with votive lanterns and hikari no objet (光のオブジェ), light-up objets d’art, some of which were displayed in last year’s Kanazawa Tsukimi Koro (金澤月見光路). Tsukimi Koro 2011 took place on the lawn between the Shiinoki Cultural Complex (しいのき迎賓館) and 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, from Sept. 16-19, 2011.
