Fortune in ! #1

Posted by Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 15 February 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture.

February 3, 2017 @北野天満宮
You maybe remember people scattered soybeans to chase off the DEMON. At that time, they said "DEMONs OUT !"
After the DEMON was chased off, the Dancers scattered soybeans to visitors including me, saying "Fortune in !". Beans were put in paper bags and we brought them home to eat !
