Good morning from Madarao.

After a fine day enjoying fresh snow yesterday, the sun is out, it is cold and we have clear blue skies above the mountain this morning and it should be another good one.

There's a 'setsubun' event over at Restaurant Heidi 1pm today if you want a bit of a Japanese culture experience. What that be then?

"Setsubun is the day before the beginning of spring in Japan. The name literally means 'seasonal division', but usually the term refers to the spring Setsubun, properly called Risshun celebrated yearly on February 3 as part of the Spring Festival (haru matsuri). In its association with the Lunar New Year, spring Setsubun can be and was previously thought of as a sort of New Year's Eve, and so was accompanied by a special ritual to cleanse away all the evil of the former year and drive away disease-bringing evil spirits for the year to come. This special ritual is called mamemaki ("bean scattering"). Setsubun has its origins in tsuina, a Chinese custom introduced to Japan in the eighth century."

I am going to totally ignore the mention of 'spring'. We want none of that yet. WINTER.
