When you visit Japan's Shinto shrines, you don't miss those small paper which is called Omikuji (fortune-telling paper).
To get one, you are often required to pay 100 yen each. Actually there is nobody to check if the money is properly paid into collecting box. However, people act here so sincerely without cheating, which is just a miracle in this greedy world. It seems that shrine's sacred atmosphere makes every visitor be right.
So, let's see how it tells you fortune. There are many fortune levels, for example, very lucky, moderately lucky, a bit lucky... so is unlucky.
It also tells you which direction is auspicious (or ominous), and gives pieces of advice about your marriage, health, money, academic achievement, human relationships. . . everything.
lf you get happy and positive one, you can keep the paper always with you. If not, try to watch the advice carefully and tie the paper on a branch nearby.
Well, good luck! I wish you a safe journey in Tokyo.
