Throw ! #2

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 12 February 2018 in Lifestyle & Culture.

They are throwing and throwing and throwing into the crowd ! People, including me, are trying to catch them !
This festival is called 節分 Setsubun. Fortune beans (roasted soybeans) are in the plastic bags. So, people are trying to catch Fortune !
Originally, beans themselves are scattered, but the plastic bags are easier to bring them home and eat at home. So recently beans are packed in the plastic bags.
