Fast-food chains in Japan are celebrating the autumn tsukimi (moon-viewing) festival with the release of special menus.

KFC Japan is set to release a Torori Tsukimi Chicken Filet Sando and Torori Tsukimi Wafu Chicken Filet Sandwich — an 11 herbs and spices deep fried cutlet with soy teriyaki glaze, a moon-referencing fried egg, shredded cabbage, and olive oil-infused mayo. McDonald’s Japan will also keep the moon theme going with the release of a more comprehensive menu that sees the Tsukimi Burger, Cheese Tsukimi, Tsukimi Muffin, Rich Melty Tsukimi, Yuzu Shichimi Mayo Fries, a Tsukimi Pie, Tsukimi McShake, and Tsukimi McFlurry. Each of the McDonald’s desserts incorporates traditional Japanese ingredients like mochi sticky rice, red bean, kinako (roasted soybean), kuromitsu (brown sugar), and warabimochi (bracken starch dumplings).

KFC Japan’s limited edition sandwiches are already out in Japan while McDonald’s Japan’s menu will go live nationwide on September 15.
