Enoura Observatory will be open in the evening for special full moon viewings five times a year starting from April. Hours for each viewing will differ according to the time of the moonrise above Sagami Bay. Details will be posted on our homepage.

The moon in the East
The sun in the West

This haiku about a full moon is by the poet Yosa Buson. At Enoura Observatory, one can also contemplate the full moon as it rises above the horizon of Sagami Bay at sundown. With the creeping darkness, you will gradually be bathed in moonlight.
Viewing a full moon is recommended for young people. A full moon might lead to a honeymoon.
Let the mystery of the moon lead to discoveries in your heart.
