On February 17th, 2023, the Consulate Cultural Affairs team visited Ridgeview Charter Middle School’s Japanese Class for a school caravan lesson on the Japanese celebration, Setsubun (Bean Throwing Festival).  During the visit, the 6-8th grade students were able to learn about the tradition of ridding homes of bad luck while welcoming in good fortune, make their own Oni (demon) masks and even participate in the throwing beans at the Oni; played by the school mascot.
