Where can you see the moon best?
Today, September 10, is the “Mid-Autumn Meigetsu”. It will coincide with the full moon again this year, as it did last year. (The Mid-Autumn Moon and the Full Moon do not necessarily coincide. Tonight, the moon will be round and round, and you will be able to enjoy viewing the moon.
As for the weather, Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Hokuriku will be clear and the moon will be visible. Especially in Hokkaido and Tohoku, the humidity is low and the air is dry, so the full moon will be clearly visible. In Kanto, there will be a lot of clouds during the day, which may cause some concern, but the clouds will gradually fade at night, so you will be able to enjoy the full moon over a wide area.
In Tokai, Kinki, Chugoku, and Shikoku, clouds are likely to spread and there may be a few showers. However, the rain will be temporary, so there will be a chance to see the moon through the clouds.
In Kyushu, clouds will increase at night, but they will be mainly thin. The moon will occasionally peek through the clouds.
Okinawa will be clear and visible in many areas, but a typhoon is approaching here. Winds will increase and waves will be high at sea. Please stay away from coastal areas.
Points to note when viewing the moon
Since the full moon is a little before 7:00 p.m., the moon is still low in the sky. It is dangerous to walk around while looking up at the sky, so please be careful.
It is still hot during the daytime, but it becomes chilly at night. In Hokkaido and Tohoku in particular, temperatures can drop to the teens in some places. Please take care of yourself.
