Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well. Have you ever heard of Setsubun? It is a holiday here in Japan that celebrates the coming of spring. This year it will be held on February 2nd.
On that day we throw dried soy beans and say, 'Oni wa soto, Fuku wa uchi!' In English, it means 'Devil out, happiness in.
Dried soybeans are nutritious, so we will eat one for each year of our life plus one, to be healthy.
We hope that eating the dried soybeans will lead to a healthy life that year. How about making some Setsubun origami?
We can make an oni (devil) or fuku (happiness) using the same model as a basic origami cup. It's really easy! Amazingly, the folds are exactly the same.
I hope you enjoy it!

Shoko Aoyagi
Ofuku san Oni
