Setsubun Festivals at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine

START: Jan 26, 2024 END: Feb 29, 2024

Embracing the spirit of Setsubun, the traditional day signifying the seasonal transition, the “Setsubun Yakuyoke Kigan Taisai” (Setsubun Evil-Warding Prayer Grand Festival) is a vibrant testament to cultural heritage and spiritual wellbeing. During this auspicious period, attendees are invited to partake in the ritualistic offerings of sacred Fukuuchiwa fans (¥500) and Setsubun lucky beans (¥200), each imbued with the power to banish misfortunes and summon prosperity. The pinnacle of the festival is the ceremonial bean-throwing event held on Setsubun, a symbolic act designed to repel evil spirits and usher in a wave of good luck, encapsulating the essence of hope and renewal.
