Setsubun

Setsubun is the division of the seasons, it marks the last day of winter and the coming of spring. People pray for good health and happiness by throwing roasted soybeans known as fortune beans at demons and shouting “Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!” meaning Demons out! Fortune in! You can experience this tradition at Edo Wonderland in early February.
