Omikuji (おみくじ)

Omikuji are sacred lots. You can find them in temples in Japan. The lots (quite a few of them with numbers on them) are kept in containers. You will have to shake the container so that one lot comes off. You then give it to the temple attendant who in turns give you the paper with your fortune written on it.

My husband, Ali, tried it when we were at Todaiji temple in Nara, Kyoto.

When we read it, we couldn’t stop laughing! The people who were watching us must have thought we had got a very good fortune!

 

I like the part where it says, [A person whom you wait for] The person will not come.

Hahaha that’s quality!!!

I hope we will have better luck next time at Sensoji temple next April!
