Setsubun festival

Setsubun event in Osu temple at 3,Feb. What is Setsubun? It is bean-scattering ceremony celebrating the coming of spring. People scatter roasted soy beans in order to drive away goblins and draw in happiness. The stage was built in front of temple. People paid money and scattred beans from there. In the fact,it was very expensive. 4000yen for 1 box of beans and rent blue jacket. Thousands of people scattered beans. Wow. It was only 5 minutes event.
