Story by Artist

Fushimi Inari Taisha, Setsubun in Kyoto City-Japan. Setsubun, is the day before the beginning of spring in Japan. The name literally means "seasonal division", but usually the term refers to the spring Setsubun, properly called Risshun celebrated yearly on February 3 as part of ...he Spring Festival. In its association with the Lunar New Year, spring Setsubun can be and was previously thought of as a sort of New Year's Eve, and so was accompanied by a special ritual to cleanse away all the evil of the former year and drive away disease-bringing evil spirits for the year to come. This special ritual is called mamemaki (literally "bean scattering"). Setsubun has its origins in tsuina, a Chinese custom introduced to Japan in the eighth century. (Courtesy: Wikipedia) Read More
