Setsubun in Kyoto!

Setsubun - means the day before the first day of spring. 

 

It usually occurs around February 3rd. 

On this day, in a custom called mame-maki, people throw and scatter roasted soy beans inside and outside their houses while saying,

 "Get goblins out of the house! Invite happiness into the home!" 

Some people believe that mame comes from the word mametsu which means drive away evil matter, in Kanji.

(quoted from https://www.alc.co.jp/speaking/article/kihon/34.html)
