Everyone, Happy Setsubun Day! 🌟☺️ Setsubun (節分) is the day before the beginning of spring in the old calendar in Japan. On this day, we drive away bad luck and evil spirits from the new year to come.
One of the main rituals we do on Setsubun day is mamemaki, which involves roasted soybeans being thrown out of the front door, or at a family member wearing an oni mask (devil mask). This symbolises the action of "Devils out! Fortune in!"
