吉田神社 節分祭と福娘 Yoshida shrine Setsubun Festival

2022.02.03

今日は節分ですね

昨日からあちこちの神社で節分祭が行われています

京都の節分祭といえば吉田神社

コロナ禍でまだまだ自粛ムードではありますがそれでも年に一回の大切な行事

「吉田神社の節分祭には何があっても行かんと気持ちわるい」

という京都人、少なくないようです^^

昨日もたくさんの露店と参拝客で活気に満ちていました

毎年どこから選ばれて来るのだろうと思うくらいかわいい福娘さん達に

今年も福を分けて頂きました

今年も皆様にたくさんの福が訪れますように

Yoshida Shrine is famous for the Setsubun Festival in Kyoto.

Setsubun (“seasonal division”) is a festival held on February 2, 3 or 4,

one day before the start of spring according to the Japanese lunar calendar.

For many centuries, people have been performing rituals with the purpose of chasing away evil spirits at the start of spring.

Although there is still a mood of self-restraint due to the Covid disaster, it is still very important annual event for people in Kyoto.

It was full of life with many yummy stalls and people just yesterday.

We think it is very important to keep these traditional events held to make us lively and happy.

May this year bring you many blessings!
