By the way, do you konw SETSUBUN?

SETSUBUN (節分, Bean-Throwing Festival or Bean-Throwing Ceremony) is the day before the beginning of Spring in Japan.
The name literally means “seasonal division”, but usually the term refers to the Spring Setsubun, properly called RISSHUN (立春) celebrated yearly on February 3 as part of the Spring Festival (春祭 HARU MATSURI).
In its association with the Lunar New Year, Spring Setsubun can be and was previously thought of as a sort of New Year’s Eve, and so was accompanied by a special ritual to cleanse away all the evil of the former year and drive away disease-bringing evil spirits for the year to come.
This special ritual is called MAMEMAKI (豆撒き) (literally “bean throwing”). SETSUBUN has its origins in TSUINA (追儺), a Chinese custom introduced to Japan in the eighth century.

We are going to have special ritual, MAMEMAKI (bean throwing) at that party. SETSUBUN and MAMEMAKI is one of the most popular Japanese traditional festival. We believe you can have the good experience at this event. Please don’t miss it!
Let’s have a unforgettable fantastic time with us!
