Red, Green and Black Demons ran away, but there remained one more Demon. This Demon did not seem a bad guy. Maybe he was purified.
After Beans Scattering Ceremony, some of visitors formed a line. Not cinema line, not coffee line, that was Demon line. It is considered that ailment will be cured after the purified Demon touches an ill part of a body with his sword. Head ? Maybe shoulder...

A powerful gesture in the face of the figure ... a sword raised ... and a group of heads who expect something ... A picture is well composed and well presented ... more than one episode featured explain their culture! Very interesting explanation. Thanks Hiro!

Good morning, Hiro
This demon looks scary. But I think if it was cleaned, it is a good thing. In every soul lies good and evil. Let the good to prevail and win. The scene is colored, brilliantly expressed.
I wish you a beautiful Sunday and thank you for your nice comment. Dear greetings Christel
