February 3rd is the day of Setsubun.
Setsubun refers to the day before the beginning of each season.
Out of all the 4 Setsubun days, Risshun (the first day of spring) is the most special day.
It is believed that Oni(Ogre) comes when the seasons change in Japan.
There are many rituals to exorcise these Oni and invite fortune.
At Sakura House, we played a game to bust Oni by throwing balls.
We also made Ehomaki (a long sushi roll) and ate them praying for happiness throughout the year.
In the afternoon, Oni showed up and came to attack us.
Everyone was so hard to try to exorcise Oni saying “Oniwa-soto” meaning “Ogres out!”.
In A&C session, everyone made a Oni mask or a god of fortune mask and showed them to their family member.
Happy New Year 2017!!
On the first day of 2017 at Sakura House, we had the programs related to Osyougatsu(New Year).
Our seniors enjoyed playing card games such as Karuta, Bozu mekuri to make them feel the new year.
We would like to extend the best wishes from the Sakura House members to yours!
May the New Year bring only good things to all of you!
We had the cleaning company for the floor at the last day of 2016.
Look at the shiny floor! Everyone will be so happy to spend the first day of the new year on the shiny floor.
