節分のお楽しみ Happy Spring!

節分は春の始まり。

まだまだ粉雪舞う信楽ですが2月に入り春待つ気持ちは高まるばかりです。

毎年恒例、太巻き寿司を作って家族でささやかなお祝いをしました。

According to the lunar calendar, February 3rd is Setsubun.

It is a day before the 1st day of spring.

We cerebrate the arrival of spring, the warmer and happier season,

eating Futomaki sushi rolls and holding bean-throwing ceremony,

which is to scatter beans inside outside of our house,

in order to drive devils away and invite fortune into the house.

今年は実家に届けた分と合わせて10本巻きました!

I ended up rolling 10 Futomaki this year!

太巻き寿司は巻く時と切る時と食べる時、3回は楽しい。

We can enjoy Futomaki at least 3 times; making, cutting, and eating!

豆まきもすんで後は本当の春を待つのみ。

Ceremony is done, time to eat beans!
