First Shrine Visit of the Year

9:30 AM - 12:45 PM

First day of school and the students went to Futarayama Shrine at the city center.
For Japanese, it is customary to go to the shrine during the New Year’s celebration to receive blessings and good luck for the new year. During this time also, people try to get their fortunes done through picking up a piece of paper via drawlots. Different charms with different purposes are also available to prevent bad luck.
