Annual snow festival begins in Sapporo

Welcome to Planet Tokyo
telegraph.co.uk - Feb 12, 2011

The public transport map of greater Tokyo is an almost terrifying sight. I say map, but there are differing versions, each showing a sprawling network of interconnecting underground and overground lines that appears almost impossibly complex. The maps spell out the scale of the metropolis - by day the population of Tokyo reaches almost 15 million - and the scale of the challenge facing visitors. They are the start of the assault on the senses that is the experience of being in the capital city of Japan; a foretaste of the freneticism and sheer strangeness of what lies ahead.

“Setsubun” ,the traditional end of winter falling on Feb.3rd

A Feb.3rd of a year is a special day on which “Setsubun”, our “traditional end of winter” or “the day before calendric beginning of spring” falls.
On this day, it is customary to throw beans at our houses, cars, buildings,and properties , shouting, “Fuku wa uchi, oni wa soto !”(Fortune in and demons out !) in order to ward off evil and bless our home and things. People say evils come out to bring bad luck on Setsubun, so we need to dispel them by throwing beans, and this custom has more than 1,300- year-old history in Japan.
