Setsubun : the beginning of Spring

on the left : antique tea pot

We have the Setsubun rituals on February 3rd, that means the division of winter and spring; Feb. 3rd is the last day of the winter and Feb. 4th, that is called Risshun, is the first day of the spring by the Japanese lunar calendar.

Today we visited Yoshida Shrine to pray for the new spring.
wishing good health and happiness, we had 'fuku-mame'(soy beans)!
