Autumnal Equinox Day (Shubun-no-hi)
Autumnal Equinox Day (秋分の日 Shubun-no-hi). In many ways, this holiday is similar to the Vernal Equinox Day. Autumnal Equinox Day is devoted to seasonal changes, as well as the veneration of the ancestors' cult. There are some specific events, such as pumpkin festival when they make various sculptural compositions out of pumpkin. It is believed that during this period the moon is the most beautiful, so Japanese are trying to find time for tsukimi - admiring the moon.
