I went to Meiji Shrine for Hatsumoude.
Hatsumoude means New Year's visits to shrines.
Meiji Shrine is right by JR Harajuku station.
Torii (shrine gateway)
Walking for a little while …
People pray for wishes.
Ema (wooden plaque)
People write down their wishes on the blank side of an ema and hang it in a shrine.
There are a variety of charms, including those for good health, a happy marriage, safe driving, business success and success in an entrance examination.
I bought a omamori for marriage tie.
I hope my wish comes true …
What is your wish for 2011?
