April full moon “Pink Moon” seen in Kyoto

Overseas, the full moon that appears in April is called the “pink moon.” The origin is said to be named after “the full moon that appears when the pink flowers bloom”, and the moon does not turn pink.

It is said that wishes will come true if “Pink Moon” is used as a mobile phone standby screen or PC wallpaper, and it is attracting attention among young people as “love is beneficial”.

“Pink Moon” seen from Funaokayama

The “pink moon” seen through the gaps between the fresh green trees was large and clear to the naked eye, but the photo is a little lacking in power. However, the streaks of light emitted from “Pink Moon” gave the atmosphere unique to a camera.

The “azaleas” that bloomed nearby are illuminated by outdoor lights, giving them a beauty different from daytime.
