Celebrate the Festival of Setsubun!
The Denver Sister Cities-Takayama Committee will celebrate the festival of “Setsubun” on Tuesday, February 12, 2012 at Sonoda’s Japanese Restaurant, 3108 S. Parker Rd., Aurora, CO 80014. The event will begin at 6:00pm with a symbolic bean throwing. The price is $40 per person for food, tax and tip (a $10 donation to the Takayama Committee is also included). Beverages and bar items are additional.

Setsubun is a traditional Japanese family festival celebrated to banish bad energy and welcome good luck into the household. It’s marked by throwing soy beans from the home’s doorway as one admonishes the “devilish” spirits to leave while welcoming the “good” spirits inside.
