Japanese celebrate this day with a long sushi roll to fill their stomach. It’s not allowed to talk while eating it but the person has to imagine his/her hope during this enjoyment. I guess it implies the hope for reborn as spring injects new life energy to everything.

So I sat in silence with my eyes closed. Each bite was filled with my hope for life.

立春天儿日本人都要吃这种长条儿的寿司。吃时禁言但要许愿。这个愿跟梦想无关跟希望有关。寿司越长愿就许的越久。

另外一项活动就是门口撒豆子以驱赶小鬼儿。

▴ Yabu made this! It’s called Ehoumaki 恵方巻き(えほうまき)

我那心地善良的房东与我分享立春的方式。

▴ Also another activity is to throw beans (any beans) to keep the evil spirits away.
