Last night, we were able to catch the ending of the lunar eclipse from our lanai. (It was really cloudy, so we missed the beginning.)
In Japanese, lunar eclipse is called gesshoku. The chinese characters are tsuki (moon) and shoku (eat). In a sense, the full moon is "being eaten" by the shadow of the earth.
By the way, a solar eclipse is called nisshoku. The chinese characters are nichi (day/sun) and shoku (eat) and the sunlight is "being eaten" by the new moon passing between of the earth and the sun.
Hope you were able to see the eclipse where you were.
