Hello everyone how have u been? I went back to Japan for 2weeks, that's why I couldn't put new post and response. ofcourse I didn't forget to take pics for uuuu! yeaaaaaaaah!!

 My hometown is Tokyo, u know Tokyo has many big city Shinjyuku, Shibuya, Harajyuku, Ikebukuro and Ginza.  When I lived in Japan I usually go to Ikebukuro. I think someone know this city cuz it became set of anime "デュラララ!! (DURARARA!!) " and Japanese drama "池袋ウエストゲートパーク(I.W.G.P)".I recommend watch this anime>< It's fun and really close with real city!→

 So on this time also I went there with my friends^^ And I found Japanese culture in there!! It's...Purikura(プリクラ)!!! This isrefers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. I can't explain well~then..I took pics about it

Most game center has section of Purikura, 池袋GiGO is the biggest in Ikebukuro. If u want u can rent some costume on free! I did manytimesXD Actually each machine has different effect.

This pic is in the box. All machine has so many lights and camera. First chose how take photo and flame.

After taking photos chose ur favorite pic and drawing on the pics. then finally the pics is  printed!

This is my favorite idol's purikuraXD so cuuuute<3  Prikura is sticker , so u can put on anywhere. If u have chance try to play with Purikura! It will be fun!!

Bean-Throwing Festival

hi! Do u know what is it today!?...yes! Febrary3rd :).......NO WAY!! What a simple answer u said!

Today is Setsubun. This is Japanese traditional event (Bean-Throwing Festival). So let's talk about it!

 Roasted soybeans (called 福豆fuku mame) are thrown either out the door or at a member of the family wearing an demon(鬼oni) mask, while the people say "Demons out! Luck in!" "鬼は~外っ! 福は~~内っっ!! Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" and slam the door. I tryed to find pics, but I can find only this !looool  May be it's in a kindegarten and some teachers immitate for demonXP

And a lots people will attend a shrine or temple's spring festival where this is done. Actually I heve never tryed to go shirines or temples on this festivalXD

 Then, as part of bringing luck in, it is customary to eat roasted soybeans, one for each year of one's life, and in some areas, one for each year of one's life plus one more for bringing good luck for the year to come...Wikipedia said←um?  Every year my father tried to eat soybeans same as his age, he couldn't every year!!!

 In Setsubun we have other custom! It is customary now to eat uncut makizushi called Eho-Maki (恵方巻)  in silence on Setsubun while facing the yearly lucky compass direction, determined by the zodiac symbol of that year...This also Wikipedia said←um!?  By the way..who is this boyXD I can't find but this pic!

hi, boy!! How is it taste! good!??..oh~~that's good! enjoy ur meal on my blog!

So that's all about Setsubun, how is it? It sounds like fun and interesting isn't it??lol
