Fortunes: Kyoto

 Yasaka shrine, Kyoto sightseeing

The paper is called as Omikuji, the paper fortune.

You can get it at most shrines and it costs about 100JPY. After drawing the fortune, it should be tied on the branch of trees or the rope in a shrine.

The results are four kinds: excellent luck, middle luck, luck and badness. The excellent luck means best and badness means worst.

Of these four results, the excellent luck is the most and the badness the less. So if you happen to draw the badness, you can also be lucky because it is the less categories and you hardly draw it.
