Rare Type! Oinari-san's Rare Oracle That Tells By Three Letters

Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, thousands of torii gates are well-known, has a rare type of 'omikuji' (written oracle) that tells your fortune by three letters, not by ordinally two letters. If you pick rarer '大大吉 dai-dai-kichi' than '大吉 dai-kichi', you're very lucky! By the way, '末大吉 sue-dai-kichi' in my photo is in the fifth place, haha!

I visited Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine which is a most popular place among people from all over the world. There were many visitors as I thought, and I took pictures to make the most of that crowd. The scene of world's people walking on the god's road was impressive for me.

An Unique Power Stone, Omo-karu Stone.

If the stone is lighter than expected, your wish may come true. But heavier, your wish don't come true. Let's try!!
