  • Tsushima Shrine Setsubun Bean Throwing Ceremony (Tsushima Jinja Setsubun Mamemaki Shiki

Japanese people celebrate Setsubun when winter is at its end, announcing the incoming spring. In a way, it's like the day that separates the year that had just ended from the new year that comes with the spring, and holds special significance as prayers are made supplicating for protection, safety and good health. At the famous Tsushima Shrine, guests asking for special evil-warding prayer take part in the purification prayer ceremony and then climb the platform outside in order to toss beans at the crowd of faithful people waiting for the beans to be thrown.
