February 3rd is the day of Setsubun. Setsubun literally means "the day between two seasons".
On Setsubun, it is tradition to throw beans to expel evil spirits and bring in good luck.
While throwing, people will yell "Out with the demons! In with the fortune!"
The children met with the students at the American school and together they threw beans and chased the "demons" away!
A few students also started to cry, but we hope that good fortune will come to everyone!
