Bean Throwing Ceremony

Today was Setsubun Festival in Japan!
“Setsubun” literally means “division of seasons”
On the Evening of 3rd February, people throw roasted soybeans inside and outside their houses with a cry of ” Fukuwa uchi, Oniwa Soto!” meaning “GOOd luck in! Devils out!”
Also Bean throwing ceremony was held at Hibiya shrine which is near from our office.
Good luck in!
