Photo Journal: Devilish diving

Divers dressed up as "devils" are seen waving to children at the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in Osaka's Minato Ward, on Jan. 22, 2016. In anticipation of the upcoming Setsubun festival -- where spring is welcomed in households across Japan by tossing soybeans and yelling "Devils out! Good luck in!" -- two "devil divers," one blue and one red, will appear in the aquarium together with resident whale sharks Kai-kun and Yu-chan daily until the day of the festival on Feb. 3. In addition to delighting young visitors, the divers are also busy cleaning the aquarium's sand and acrylic panels, as well as taking commemorative photographs in between diving sessions. (Mainichi)
