The Harvest Moon is spectacular to see from anywhere in the world, but Nagano Prefecture has 2 locations that are particularly famous for viewing the moon: Matsumoto Castle and the Obasute terraced rice fields in Chikuma City.
Matsumoto Castle has a ‘tsukimi-yagura’ (moon-viewing tower), from where you can see the moons three-fold: one in the sky, one reflected in the moat, and one reflected in … well, any guesses where?

At the Obasute rice fields, the number of moons you can see doesn’t stop at 3. The terraces are known as “Tagoto-no-Tsuki” meaning the moon reflects in the individual rice fields. I think you need some of the local sake in order to see that properly. (Oh, there’s a hint for the answer to my question!)
