Setsubun 2021

Sayonara (Goodbye) 2020 Kon’nichiwa (Hello) 2021

Setsubun (seasonal division) is an annual holiday celebrated in tandem with the Spring Festival in Japan held on February 2nd, known as the beloved bean-throwing festival. The rituals and traditions of Setsubun serve to drive away the bad fortunes and evil spirits from the previous year and keep them away from disrupting the year to come.

Mamemaki (bean scattering) is the popular ritual of Setsubun and is the act of throwing fukumame (fortune beans) out the front door or at a family member wearing an oni (ogre) mask, while shouting, “Oni wa soto! Fuku wauchi!” (“Ogres out! Fortune in!”). Symbolically, the beans purify the bad energy and misfortune, and it’s good luck to eat them, one for each year of one’s life!

Kura Sushi is celebrating Setsubun all month long in February by giving an oni
(ogre) mask and roasted soybeans for $30.00 minimum takeout orders (excluding tip/tax/delivery fees).
Promotion begins 2/1/2021 until supplies last and is for takeout & delivery orders only.
