*Notes:

Kimodameshi is a game/event in which the teachers will set up a night walk for students through a course, planning to hide and scare the students in different ways. Students will pair off and try to make it to the end of the walking course and bring back proof that they made it.

Setsubun is the holiday in which roasted soybeans are tossed to shoo out oni (whether symbolic or a person in a costume) bring in good luck in the new year. At Kikuryou's Setsubun event, certain teachers will be selected to play the part of the oni while the students and other teachers toss the soybeans. After school there will be a party at which futomaki (lucky fat rolls of sushi) are made and eaten.
