Omikuji (おみくじ or 御神籤)

Omikuji (おみくじ or 御神籤) are fortunes, generally bought from temples and shrines in Japan. “Omikuji” is often translated as “sacred lot.” The word kuji means lottery, and getting your omikuji always comes with an element of randomness. Each of these cute figurines comes with an Omikuji attached to them! Be sure to get your fortune told!

Long ago, omikuji were used to divine the gods’ opinion on important matters, choosing successors, determining battle strategy, etc., and was an extremely sacred occasion. In contrast, these days anyone can freely take their fate into their own hands.
