Komoro old town

We start the day with Setsubun, as it’s 3rd Feb. Setsubun is the festival to get rid of demons and therefore bring good luck. They have big celebrations at shrines and temples all around Japan in Kyoto they take have a big event

I play the part of a demon and the kids throw soya beans at me!

Kids seem more interested in eating them then throwing them, the mask come free with the soya beans/nuts, they are really tasty
