What's Setsubun & Setsubun-Obake?
Setsubun(節分) literally mean the day between two seasons.
Nowaday, Setsubun is popularly known as a festival held on Risshun(立春);
the coming of spring on Feb. 3rd.
During a festival, we celebrate the coming of Spring
and throw beans calling out "Fortune in, Demons out!"
Also, we eat a whole sushi roll called Eho-maki(恵方巻き) with closed eyes,
in a silence, facing the auspicious direction of the new year.
Setsubun-Obake(節分おばけ) used to be a costume ritual to protect people from demons in the late Edo period. people changes costumes and hairstyles;
e.g. a girl wears costume like a aged person and a woman dresses like a man,
without letting the demons identify them.
