Hi, it's Sumire!
Have you been to a shrine in Japan?
Since we greeted the New Year, I went to the shrine near my house in Saitama prefecture last week.
As you know that we have special annual culture called "Hatsumode"(初詣).
It is an event to pray for safety and peace for the year by visiting a shrine or temple.
The shrine I visited is called "Koma shrine".
This shrine is known for success and better fortune in your life.
After getting through the first gate, you can see those two stone pillars.
It means to protect from entering evil splits.
And why is it known for success and better fortune?
Because many famous politics became to be Prime Minister after they visited the shrine!
How simple is that!?!?Lol
If you want to be famous or successful person, you should go there!
Thank you for reading!
