〜Season transition 豆蒔き〜

Today falls on Setsubun, the day before the beginning of spring and at the same time, beginning of a new year.  There is a long tradition or a custom that we playact throwing beans to the ogres (symbol of evil spirits) in order to chase away ill fortunes on the evening of this day.

One theory says “On this evening when years switch around, people entertain ogres that come to this world from the alien world through the crevice of “time” with feast (beans) and urge them to return to their world.”

Driven by the scattered beans/

Archipelago is full of ogres/
