Paper prayers

Omikuji is a written oracle which Japanese uses to predict one's fortune, generally in the matter of health, love, life, so on.

If one gets a bad predictions, the omukuji will be fold up and be tied to a pine tree in the temple grounds. So that the bad luck will stay with the pine tree and not the bearer. However, if it's good one, the bearer will keep it.
