I am a bad guy !

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 4 February 2016 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

One year is divided into 4 seasons, such as spring, summer, autumn, and winter. February 4th is the first day of the spring (Risshun 立春) in Japanese traditional calender. And the day before it, February 3rd, is called Setsubun 節分, season dividing day. On Setsubun 節分 day, so many events are held at many places, such as shrines or temples.

鬼 Oni is the symbol of evil spirit. 鬼 Oni appears in Setsubun events as a target who is beaten by people.

Yes, he looks scary ... in the dark I would scream, trying to get away from him ... the costume color is brilliant ... it is positively supported by dark background ...
