O-mikuji おみくじ(fortune paper) can be found in shinto shrines all over Japan. It is a written divination about a person’s near future. Many people pick o-mikuji when they visit shine for the first time of the year hoping the result tells great things.
I picked “Daikichi”だいきち this year. Yay!!! ⇓
The standard O-mikuji has about four kinds of results regarding luck ranging from daikyo to daikichi.
大凶 だいきょう daikyō (great bad luck)
凶 きょう kyō(bad luck)
吉 きち kichi (good luck)
大吉 だいきち daikichi (great good luck)
The advises about general things such as love, business, travel are also written in this paper.
