Enjoy Moon-Viewing Festival with Cutest Mochi Balls That Look Like Java Sparrows

Moon-viewing, or tsukimi, is a traditional festival in Japan (and my other regions of Asia) on 15th days of eights months in lunar calendar, in which falls on September 20th of 2013 in modern solar calendar. Usually, moon-viewing is celebrated with dango, a rice-based sweet made with mochi powder.

A Japanese Twitter user (@gelatik_putith) made these super cute dango for this year’s tsukimi. They are Java sparrow dango!

They are absolutely adorable ^_^
Later on, the Java sparrows took some bathes in apple soda and grape soda.
