Introducing points recommend by locals who can see famous people at the sowing of beans in Osaka Naritasan.

I was born in Hirakata and raised in Neyagawa. Now I live 5 minutes on foot from Mt. Narita. I knew about Naritasan sowing beans for a long time, but I didn’t go there because there were so many people.

But I wanted to see it once. I investigated a lot for that. As a result, I was able to see the 2019 guests and took pictures.

Please refer to the spots where you can see famous people recommend by the local people.

3.How can I get lucky beans by looking at the guests?

To see the guests at the Setsubun Festival in Narita at Osaka, you need to wait before the Setsubun Festival begins. The guest appears 3 times at the sowing beans  of Osaka Naritasan. The 10:30 time is the most popular among them, and many people gather.

3-1.1 You should arrive there before 1 hour

This photo was taken when I arrived at the venue one hour before. In 2019,It was cloudy on Sunday, but the venue was already crowded.

According to the Narita staff, one hour before that, the venue was full. Also, the time to crowd will change depending on the day of the week and the weather.

From this place, guests can’t see, and you can’t get lucky beans.

3-2. Know where you can get lucky beans and where you can see guest.

This is the guest I saw at the sowing  beans  venue. It ’s quite far away.

5-1. The recommended spot is “Furufuda no-syo”

A spot where guests can easily see is near there in the back of the precinct. The advantage is that the time for gathering people is late, unlike the sowing bean venue. Also recommended because you can move.

It ’s a spot where you can see sowing beans , avoiding the crowd.

5-1.First of all, it is a place for a commemorative photo taken before the sowing beans begins.

This is in front of “Kichijokaku” and “Yasuragi of rest place” in the right back of the precincts. This is point 1 of the guide map introduced before.

You can see it like this.

It is time to move after shooting. This is a zoom photo, but you can see the expression with your eyes. It is rare that the front is obstructive and difficult to see. Because this place is a staircase.

5-2.The other is when moving to the sowing beans.

The guest will move to the main hall after the shooting . After receiving a prayer here, we will move to the sowing beans place through this connection. This is the point of “2” in the guide map introduced before.
You can pass directly under the connecting road.

There were many people on the other side but there were few people here.

You can also see the expressions of guests.

Another reason to recommend this is that the guest was seeing around here before sowing the beans. It ’s only here.

6.Is there a toilet?

The toilet is in the parking in front of the Yamamon. Many people gets  inside. It is better to use the toilet before entering Because it becomes difficult to move.

7.Precautions when looking at sowing the beans

Small children and the elderly are not allowed to enter the here.

It is very dangerous to pick up the lucky beans that have fallen down.

Also, since you can’t use an umbrella so you should bring a raincoat when the weather is bad.
