Do you know how to play fortune slip?
We call it OMIKUJI in Japanese.
How to play
?Put money into a coin box (usually it costs \１００）.
?Shake well and reverse the wooden box which is in front of the drawer.
?Get one tag and remember the number on it.
?Find the drawer which has your number on it. If it is writtten in Kanji, just ask someone around you.
?Open the drawer and pick one paper. It will tell you about your fortune in that year. It is written in English, too at Sensouji.
?If you think it says bad or unhappy things, you had better to bind the paper to a fence next to the drawer in order to be purified. On the other hand, if you get a good luck, just keep it in your purse. It will be a good souvenir, too.
You got it? Then let's try it!
