Otsukimi : Rabbit

Today's theme is "Otsukimi" again. 

In Japan, it is said that rabbits are pounding steamed rice into cake on the full moon called "Jugo Ya".

It is because we see the full moon's surface looks like that.

There is a story like this.

When a rabbit met an old man downed by hunger, it burned itself, and gave itself to him.

The old man was Taisyakuten (a god of Brahmanism), and he sent that rabbit to the moon to convey to posterity the act of its dedication.

That is why, Japanese people remind rabbits in a full moon with "Otsukimi".

 

We have some furoshiki which patterns are rabbit.
