1 day into Setubun festival!!
The festival called "Setubun" are going to be held on 2nd and 3rd of this month, as yearly held since the first time it's began in 794 year.
This festival was originally meant to be a celebration for the coming spring, but now days, the meaning of this festival is not only such a celebration, but also a wish for happiness and driving away the ill luck of the year, and people believe they can actualize that by throwing beans to the demons. You can see this festival at several shrines though, the biggest one is held at Yoshida shrine. If you have a chance while you stay, i highly recommend you to go and experience.
