Setsubun(節分)

We are having Setsubun(The day before the beginning of Spring in Japan) soon.

Before Setsubun, you see a lot of parched soybeans (For throwing.  We try to get rid of bad luck and wish to bring good luck by throwing beans to ONI) sold in the grocery stores.    It usually comes with a mask of ONI(an ogre/a devil) like above photo.

The parched soybeans look like this⇒20170131_190430_hdr    20170131_190513_hdr

What do you think?!
