Arahito Shrine

 This is one of the sacred trees on the shrine grounds.
 These are slips of paper with fortunes for the coming year written on them. You buy them from the shrine and, after reading them, you tie them up for the god to see, hoping that the god will help bring the good fortunes about and to change the bad fortunes.
Usually the shrine shop is on the grounds, but at Arahito Jinja it is across the street. This is where you purchase you fortune or buy amulets to protect you during the coming year.
