Until Monday, February 3, 2020 / Daimaru Tokyo shop the first floor, basement floor Hope Town
February 3 (Mon) is "Setsubun". There is a custom that the day before spring, when spring comes, is called "setsubun", sowing beans at the turn of the season, eating bouts of beans for a number of years, removing evil, and praying for disease-free breathing. At the Daimaru Tokyo store, limited quantities of Japanese and Western confections that bring good fortune, such as fuku beans in a zodiac basin and roll cakes that look like Ehomaki rolls of colorful fruits wrapped in cocoa dough, are available. Here are 7 selections.
A small basin designed this year's zodiac "child". Rich soybeans, confetti, ogre and turtles with rich soybeans.
