Beauty Under the Harvest Moon

In the entrance of Taishido Acupuncture Clinic, there is a night-blooming cereus, called "Gekka-bijin" in Japanese, literally translated in English as "beauty under the moon".  It is very beautiful, but blooms for only one night.

On Monday, September 12th, the harvest moon, it bloomed! "Beauty under the moon" bloomed under the harvest moon!
