Setsubun at Kushida Shrine

START: Feb 3, 2020 END: Feb 3, 2020

On the day before the first day of spring, beans are tossed to shouts of oni wa soto, fuku wa uchi (Demons out! Luck in!) in a ritual that wards off evil. The path to the shrine is lined with stalls, and Japan’s biggest Otafuku mask (a good luck talisman) greets you at the shrine entrance. Expect big crowds!
