Story & Recommendation
Throwing beans for expelling out devil and taking in good fortune
Setsubun means the turning point of the season. In other words, setsubun is the last day of winter and first day of spring. People visit temples or shrines to pray for this year's health and safety and throw beans to get rid of devil. Beans have a meaning of peace, that is why beans are used for setsubun events. Setsubun events will be held at Yoshida Shrine from February 2nd to 4th. It has been continued since the 14th century and became the big festival that several hundreds or thousand people are coming from all over Japan. Good fortune beans, amulet and woody holy stick are served to people who visit to Yoshida shrine during that time. ▼Click here for Writer's Blog http://sharing-kyoto.com/Blog/b_Yoshida-shrine-setsubun-festival/
