Spring Festival in Asakusa

Posted by Sadao Sasaki on

This video observes a spring festival in Asakusa through the lens of an international visitor.  The video host explains the history behind the festival.  Setsubun is commonly known as a bean-throwing festival to celebrate the beginning of spring, observed each year on February 3 during the Haru Matsuri (Spring Festival). Much like Lunar New Year celebrations around the world.
