Today falls on setsubun. On this day we grill sardines, which means to drive out devils by their smoke. We eat an eho-maki roll as well. It has been our custom since the old days, biting into a big sushi roll looking at the annual lucky direction without speaking any words until the finish. Besides, we eat parched soybeans. We eat one more bean than our age counting in the old Japanese way according to our hometown’s rule.
