While raining days are continuing, we went to Yasui Kompiragu.
This shrine in Gion district is a famous place among couples.
In the middle of the shrine there is an “enkiri/enmusubi stone.” People believe that the stone has power to make good relationships stronger and sever bad ones. On a special paper you write your wish, stick it with glue to the stone and crawl through the tunnel in the stone from front to back. If you want to end a relationship, you crawl through from back to front.
Actually, I found it very helpful to realize what exactly you want to leave in past and what you want to preserve in life!
