Beans for Setsubun

tenpyoan_1

My friend gave me a couple of beans packs for ‘Setsubun’ with 2 kinds of small masks such as Oni (a devil) and Otafuku (women’s face).

‘Setsubun’ is the day before the beginning of Spring in Japan.
It is usually February 3rd. Bean throwing, called ‘mamemaki’, is done at home on the day of ‘Setsubun’.

One bean is ‘sukeroku-mame(beans)’ that is salty taste.
Some dried laver seaweeds are put around the beans.

Other bean is ‘goshiki(5 kinds of colors)-mame(beans)’that is sweet taste.
The beans are beautifully covered by colored sugars.

I am not going to throw them, but I am going to eat all of them.

The coat is leopard print lined and also features a gathered front and rear yoke and concealed side seam pockets.
I’d love to wear the coat everyday.

My best bakery is “Le Petitmec” in Shinjuku recently, that came from Kyoto.
The bakery produced sandwiches cafe in Jingumae. I’m interested in their special deer burger, but unfortunately it was sold out in that time.

So, we had shrimp tartar-sauce sandwich and roast-beef sandwich.
Of course these were good, but we need to go there again soon and try deer burger!
