Information of Setsubun-sai (Day before the First of Spring)

On this day, there is the custom that people scatter parched beans to drive out evil.

Originally, Setsubun refers to “division of seasons”, and nowadays it indicates the eve of the first day of spring (Risshun). 

Two special rituals called Meigen (resounding bowstrings) and Mamemaki (scattering beans) will be held at the Lower Worship Hall.

For participating in picking-up beans, a numbered ticket will be distributed beforehand.
