Hi antidote, these men are in early preparations for Setsubun festival (marking the begnining of Spring) . They had just finished purifying themselves with buckets of icy water (i'll ad this pic if i can find it) and are on thier way to practice dancing for when they transform themselves from human to "oni" (devils) the following day. Both the preparations and ceremony are quite amazing. : )
