Senso-ji Temple (浅草寺, Sensōji) is a popular spot for omikuji, or fortunes. These auspicious sheets are offered in a multitude of languages, enticing both Japanese and foreigners alike to see how their luck plays out. If the number you draw is less than lucky, don’t worry – simply tie up the offending fortune on the nearby wires and allow your bad karma to be spirited away.
