There are versions Omikujis.
Let’s try a paper fortune. Daikichi means best luck😉✨ The strip tells your fortune.
Daikichi means best luck, kichi means good luck, and kyo means bad luck.
You should leave your unlucky strip. You can keep a lucky strip in your purse.
Arrivée en haut du temple (sauf la première photo qui est un peu plus en bas mais mon dieu que j'adorais cet endroit !!) J'ai tiré pour la première fois deux Omikuji (qui nous apporte des informations sur notre avenir)
Bon je ne comprends pratiquement rien mais d'après la dame qui était là, elle m'a dit que j'avais de la chance pour les deux Tirages 😍😍 Je vais les garder précieusement !
Fukuoka's famous "kazariyama floats" (the last picture showing a special one made for the rugby world cup !) ; "omikuji" which are fortune paper slips you can find in temples, and tie it to a wire if it's bad luck (you can apparently also do it to increase a good luck fortune) ; a golden carp and some saké barrels 🍶
Had such a lovely experience at Zōjōji Temple today. We each got an omikuji (fortune) and our Written Oracle gave us both dai-kichi (great luck). We got to watch a ceremony in the main temple, and burned some incense as we left. The "care guardian deities of children" was incredibly beautiful. We got our first stamp in our notebook too!

Many Japanese shrines and temples offer visitors the chance to get their fortunes told. The fortune is meant to last all year, but there is nothing preventing you from getting a fortune from every place you visit.
Paper fortunes are known as omikuji, ranging between ¥100–¥200 usually. A popular way to receive your omikuji is to shake a container to obtrain a thin numbered stick. This will tell you which fortune to take. Some shrines nowadays have vending machines in lieu of the traditional container.
Typically, these fortunes are only in Japanese, but bigger places or places that tend to be favoured by foreigners are introducing English and othe language omikuji along side their Japanese ones. The Japanese ones do tend to be more detailed, but in my experience the English ones are pretty well written as well.
Your typical omikuji will feature a result ranging from daikyō (great bad luck) and kyō (bad luck) to kichi (good luck) and daikichi (great good luck). If you get a fortune that you do not like, typically bad luck or worse but also just one with a section on it you do not like, you can tie it up in a designated area to cast away the fortune in hopes that it doesn't come true.
Have you tried getting an omikuji before? What was your result? Comment below!
I drew an o-mikuji today at my home shrine. Typically o-mikuji are drawn at New Years but I notice that my fortune tends to change throughout the year and the o-mikuji I draw reflect that and offer relevant advice for my present and future. According to #50 , my fortune is Very Good. This translates in Japanese to chū-kichi or Middle Blessing. This fortune is so relevant to my work day today. Always be good and be modest!! I needed that reminder. O-mikuji or “sacred lot” are fortunes available at Japanese Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. If a person’s fortune is bad it’s good to roll up the fortune and attach it to a pine tree (or any tree in the case of my home shrine). Here I have my o-mikuji paired with moonstone bracelets and angelite, which is a stone that helps bestow the protection of angels, spirit guides, and gods. #kotohiradazaifu#kami#omikuji#fortune#goodluck#oracle#shinto#shrine
These little guys are fortune-giving teru teru bozu! Traditionally used to change the weather, our Omikuji Bozu also bring luck (or misfortune)!
Omikuji charms are random fortunes you can get at shrines, and there's many types of fortunes you can get, ranging from big blessing (dai-kuji) to big curse (dai-kyo).⛩
Choosing my Omikuji (おみくじ) fortune at #Sensoji ⛩ Omikuji are Japanese fortune-telling paper strips and such a fun experience- you pull a stick and match the drawer to the stick you have chosen... if a bad fortune is drawn, you have to tie it off and release the bad energy 💕🔮💫
