      Motoko BirkenheierAbout the Omikuji. Omikuji is a piece of paper which can be purchased in most Shinto shrines during the New Year. You pick it up at random and your fortune for the next year is on the paper. There are many different explainations for this custom but this is the most likely- If the paper says you'll have excellent luck this year, you keep it with you all year. However, if it says bad luck might strike you this year, you can fasten it up to a tree or a rope in the shrine and you can escape from the bad luck. These are bad fortune Omikuji that are fastened by rope to in the shrine. This custom stems from both religious belief and traditional behavior.

      Motoko BirkenheierYes!! It's like a Mont Saint-Michel in France. Because it has some things in common with the great Torrii. 1. They are registered as world heritage sites and are floating on the sea. 2. They have a over 1000-year history and are considered sacred religious sites. 3. They are tourist spots and represent each country. Got it!! That's why I think the floating Torii is similar to Mont Saint-Michel in some ways.

      Motoko BirkenheierIt takes about 10 minutes by ferry to travel from Miyajimaguchi pier to the world cultural heritage site of Miyajima. Two ferry companies operate between Miyajimaguchi and Miyajima island, the JR ferry and the Miyajima Matsudai Kisen. You can see the great red torri what float on the surface of sea in the distance. We'll be at Miyajima (Itukushima) soon.
