Sensoji Temple main hall east side special stage [Click here for the map]

A characteristic of the Setsubun-e at Sensoji Temple in the Edo period was that 10,000 paper-cut bills were made with the inscription ``Setsubun Hannya Heart Sutra Several Places'' written on them, and 3,300 of them were placed on the east and west pillars of the outer hall of the main hall after the Setsubun-e memorial service was over. It was an event where a shelf was set up and a large fan with the word Setsubun written on it was used to spread the seeds.Nowadays, volunteers from the general public have grown up, and after the memorial service, they throw beans on a stage built outside the east corridor of the main hall.

The Seven Lucky Gods Dance will be performed from 2:30 p.m., followed by the bean-throwing by cultural entertainers four times every 20 minutes from 4 p.m.
Geisha from the Tokyo Asakusa Association will participate in the final round.
