Setsubun ~Nagoya, Kakuozan International Preschool ~
An ogre, no wait . . . TWO ogres came to visit KIPS this year. Many Hatchlings, Ducklings and Hummingbirds were scared and cried but they practised how to throw the beans at the ogres to chase away bad spirits and invite good luck.
The older students were more excited and many of them enjoyed chasing after the ogres and being chased by them. We all had fun yelling “Go away evil!! Come good luck!”
We hope to have a lot of luck this year!
