👹 What is Setsubun? 👹

Setsubun image

Setsubun is a traditional Japanese festival signaling the end of winter and the onset of spring, typically observed on February 3rd or 4th, depending on the lunar calendar. "Setsubun" translates to "seasonal division," and the festival is rooted in driving away evil spirits while ushering in good luck for the upcoming season.
During Setsubun, a common tradition is "mamemaki," the tossing of roasted soybeans. Participants take turns throwing beans, shouting "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" meaning "Out with demons! In with good luck!" The objective is to dispel evil spirits and welcome positive energy into homes.

🍣 What is Ehomaki? 🍣

Ehomaki is a special type of sushi roll associated with Setsubun. This elongated sushi roll is filled with a variety of ingredients, including vegetables, seafood, and meat. A unique aspect of Ehomaki is its consumption: traditionally eaten in silence, facing a specific direction. While enjoying the roll, participants make wishes for good fortune. The direction one faces changes annually based on the Chinese zodiac sign.
Both Setsubun and Ehomaki are integral parts of Japan's diverse cultural heritage, celebrated in homes, temples, and shrines throughout the country. Join us for this immersive experience and gain insights into Japanese traditions and language learning strategies.
