It suddenly became cold in the morning and evening. During this season, the style of drinking sake while watching the moon has been a staple since the Heian period. They called it moon viewing sake.

Cancer is also said to decrease with this diet style.

 While drinking sake in the autumn of harvest, while looking at the moon, I thanked nature and received sake.
