Mamemaki (soya bean throwing) is a ceremony held as part of Setsubun (the end of winter and the start of spring according to the old lunar calendar) in order to ward off disasters and accidents, ensure good health and to bring good fortune.
Zojoji Temple, famed for its association with the long line of Tokugawa shoguns and for its proximity to Tokyo Tower, will have a bean-flinging ceremony with men and women born in the same year as the current year of the Chinese zodiac (e.g. the rabbit) kitted out in samurai garb.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
