2015 year is rapidly coming by.
Would you like to know what it is going to bring to your life?
The very first thing I will definitely do in the beginning of January is going to a temple and taking OMIKUJI.
Omikuji is a prediction written on the strips of paper which you can take paying about 100 yen at any shrine or temple.
On the very top of prediction you can see 1 or 2 characters, for instance:
大吉 very good luck
吉 good luck
末吉 ending of your good luck
凶 bad luck
And more detailed fortune (like marriage, long trip or disease) is written bellow. If it happens that you got a bad prediction, it is a custom to fold up the strip of paper and attach it to a pine tree in the temple or shrine grounds.
By the way, in Kyoto Omikuji in English are available at Sanjyusangendo Temple!
