My sister suggested we get our futures foretold at the Kau Cim stall in the Asakusa shrine in Tokyo.
I didn’t think it was a good idea. I do not believe in divination and felt it would play on her mind if she didn’t ‘draw’ good luck. But she was insistent and so we went through the drill and picked our slips of paper from the corresponding drawer.
My slip read “Daikichi” (great good luck), hers was evident from her dejected expression. I resisted the urge to say “I told you so.”
Following are images of a young lady checking her future prospects at the Itsukushima shrine, Hiroshima.
This is how mine went……
Did I read “It is good to start a trip”? Have my fingers and toes crossed!
