3 items

    In the traditional calendar, 'Risshun (立春)' marks the onset of spring and was once considered the start of the new year. A unique Japanese tradition takes place on 'Setsubun (節分),' the day before Risshun, where people scatter beans while chanting '鬼は外! 福は内! (Fortune in! Demons out!)' to ward off evil spirits (misfortunes).
