Sestubun : Oni hunt is opened. Don’t count your daizu before they are hatched.

These ugly oni invaded this blog (and all Japan). Today is called Setsubun. If you succeed in chasing the bad and mean oni out of the house, happiness and Spring will come.

Weapon to kill them. On the left dried daizu (soy beans) that can kill your teeth. On the right, iri daizu (roast soy bean) that you throw around at the oni. Let’s go !

I got those fancy masks at local shops. They give them when you buy daizu. Of course, the roast ones are a good snack.
Keep tuned. Spring arrives in next post,
