Ebisu is a traditional Japanese deity and most Japanese pray for business success at Ebisu shrines.
I visited both Imamiya Shrine in Osaka and Nishinomiya Shrine in Hyogo Prefecture. Both shrines are dedicated to Ebisu.
In Imamiya Ebisu Shrine
Japanese buy bamboo grass decorated with auspicious ornaments. I heard vendors shouting "Bring bamboo grass !! bring good business !!"

is the head shrine of Ebisu. In the shrine, with the opening of the gates at six in the morning on January 10th, several thousand people rush the approach to the main shrine with a length of 230 meters. The first three people who reach the main building are chosen to be the lucky persons of the year. This year the luckiest person was a university student.
I bought fortune bamboo grasses in prayer for the safety of my family and good guide business.
