Speaking of which, I once had tsukimi udon several years ago. It was at an old eatery in one of the shopping malls. Mine was probably the simplest of all versions: soft, chewy udon in a light-flavoured broth topped with a raw egg. I didn't regret eating that though it was kind of expensive for something that simple. It was definitely a refreshing experience which would probably have remained unnoticed till this day had I not given it a try. The Japanese have seasonal menus every year that are just impressive and gut-wrenching, especially for people like myself who isn't anywhere near Japan and won't be anytime soon.
See what I mean? How many people have they intended to kill with a line-up like above? There is a Full Moon Cheese Tsukimi, a Cheese Tsukimi and a Tsukimi Burger! Okay, perhaps they don't really look that impressive to some people. But I have taken a fancy to the little rabbit on the moon. Isn't it cute? A burger-chomping usagi. I wish that I could let them take my money! Nope, ordering the Egg McMuffin isn't the same.
Apparently, there is another form of Tsukimi on the web though not really relevant to moon-watching and such. She has popped out as the very first image on Google, and her name is Tsukimi which is the main character of Princess Jellyfish, a manga slash anime series. Well, I thought that I would just put her picture here. No other reason is necessary. She does look extremely awkward here. Anyway, I hope that most of you have had some mooncake and tea! I couldn't see the moon anywhere though, but I'm sure that the rabbit had been somewhere munching on a burger.
