In preparation for the Setsubun festival on Feb. 3, the shopping facilities in Tokyo Station: Gransta, Gransta Dining and Central Street will hold a special fair featuring “eho-maki” sushi rolls and roll cakes between Jan. 23 and Feb. 3.

Setsubun, which literally means the day between two seasons, is a festival celebrating the end of winter. In addition to throwing roasted soybeans to drive demons out of their homes, people usually eat special eho-maki sushi rolls, which are larger than normal rolls, and are made from seasonal ingredients such as crab.
