A little about myself.
I am an IT technician, participate in many projects, some HTML work, and reading a lot. I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

What is Eho-maki?

Eho-maki is a strange custom. They say that is originally from Osaka. I lived in Kobe, next to Osaka,  for 4 years when I was a college student , and had many Osaka friends. But none of them had such a strange custom. I believe that Osaka people didn't eat Sushi Rolls on Setsubun day, at least at that time.

I guess this custom began in 1990's.  If so, I understand why I didn't know.

  1. not from 1990th.
    It's from the edo period(some says it's from Taisho period because it became more popular to public).
