The day of Setsubun is coming soon! On Feb 2,this year.
Speaking of Setsubun, we throw the beans while shouting."Oni wa soto! Fuku wa Uchi!But recently, we often see people biting into thick sushi rolls called "Eho maki". (Eho means good luck direction).
We eat it while facing the year’s “Eho” (good luck direction).
By the way, good luck direction is different depending on the year.
We bite into one large Eho maki roll.
Eating the whole roll is believed to bring happiness and prosperity. By keeping to eat whole sushi,you don't miss out on the luck, you can get the good luck of the year.So,this day, family bites into a whole sushi roll in silence.
Interesting, isn't it!
