Shrine's event_Setsubun


Bean throwing called mamemaki is done at home on the night of Setsubun. People scatter roasted soy beans inside and outside their houses shouting, “Fortune in, devils out”.

Then they eat the same number of beans as their age and wish for good health. Bean is “mame” in Japanese which means good health.

At some houses, where there are especially young children, one of the family members (usually the father) act as an "Oni", and the kids throw beans at him to make him ran away.

Hi there, here are my result.

People ( mainly girls ) enjoy reading Omikuji ( a written fortune) on the premises of Tokyo Daijingu shrine.
Since St. Valentine's Day is approaching, they seem to especially care about their luck together with their loved one.

The entrance of Akagi jinja shrine. They held Mamemaki ( bean tossing ceremony) inside the lot and many kids threw small bags of beans to the spectators. Thanks Koki ( TETSU's son), he caught enough number of those bags of beans to share with us :clap: We ate them.

It was cold and windy day. So after I finished previous piece, I evacuated inside this cafe until our meeting time came. This was a time killing sketch.
