【The Tokyo Shrines and Temples that have Omikujis in English】
When the Japanese welcome the New Year, there is one customs here in Japan which is called "Hatsu-moude".(New Year Embrace)
"Hatsu-moude" is known as the visiting a Shinto shrine or Buddhist temple to pray for safety and peace for the year. It is believed that the appropriate time is from the 1st of Jan to the 2nd of Feb since it should be done at the beginning of the year.
Therefore, most of the Japanese folk tend to visit the places right after welcoming new year as you could see many shrines and temples get crowded with people normally from midnight of 31th Dec.
Also, there is one more thing to do during Hatsu-moude and it is called "Omikuji".(Fortune)
What is "Omikuji"??
It is a fortune slip which you would choose and draw from the box. When you open the slip that you recieved, you could see your predictions of the year which would be one of the listed titles below:
大吉 "Dai-Kichi"→Excellent Luck
中吉 "Chuu-Kichi"→Fair Luck
小吉 "Shou-Kichi"→A little Luck
吉 "Kichi"→Good Luck
末吉 "Sue-Kichi"→Uncertain Luck
凶 "Kyou"→Bad Luck(Misfortune)
大凶 "Dai-Kyou"→Worst Luck(Great Misfortune)
