New Year’s Visit To A Shrine in Kamakura

Although belated post, I went to New Year’s visit to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu shrine in Kamakura on 1st January.

I pray for health(I and my family) and success of my business every year. For all that it was a evening, it was visited by many people.

I was able to pray for about 40 minutes after my arrival.

After pray, I bought “Ha-ma-ya”.

Hamaya is ritual arrows to drive away devils, Japanese put Hamaya in their house as a lucky charm in New year.
