you can purchase OMIKUJI in this house..its about 200 yen per paper..

Shinto shrines are places of worship and the dwellings of the kami, the Shinto "gods".

Sacred objects of worship that represent the kami are stored in the innermost chamber of the shrine where they cannot be seen by anybody.

People visit shrines in order to pay respect to the kami or to pray for good fortune. Shrines are also visited during special events such as New Year, setsubun, shichigosan and other festivals.

New born babies are traditionally brought to a shrine a few days after birth, and many couples hold their wedding ceremonies there.

Omikuji are fortune telling paper slips found at many shrines and temples.

Randomly drawn, they contain predictions ranging from daikichi ("great good luck") to daikyo ("great bad luck").

By tying the piece of paper around a tree's branch, good fortune will come true or bad fortune can be averted.
