Weekly Photo Challenge : Future Tense


Uranai(占い)  or Fortune Telling is a big thing in Japan. You can find it in almost all temples around the country. Some temple in Kyoto, I think Kinkaju, even have an English version. Mostly it is just a little piece of rolled or folder paper but this one in Amanohashidate is in a fan form. Though it is a little bit more pricey than the normal one, but it is still cute.

If you don’t like what is written , you can just leave it tied to one of trees or shrub around the temple.

    Oh I like that, it’s like me reading the horoscopes and if I don’t like what the Cancer one says I just read the Aquarius! 🙂
