O-mikuji (御御籤, 御神籤, or おみくじ o-mikuji) are random fortunes written on strips of paper at Shintoshrines and Buddhist temples in Japan.
The o-mikuji predicts the person's chances of his or her hopes coming true, of finding a good match, or generally matters of health, fortune, life, etc. When the prediction is bad, it is a custom to fold up the strip of paper and attach it to a pine tree or a wall of metal wires alongside other bad fortunes in the temple or shrine grounds.
Since our omikuji was a positive one we kept it.

When in Sensō-ji Temple
The Omikuji (Luck Divining Paper Slips)
At Sensoji, visitors can buy the omikuji (paper fortune). The rumor goes that there are more kyo (bad luck) omikuji here compared to other temples or shrines, but many visitors still buy them.
Jokoro - Good-Luck Bringing Incense
A large incense burner is placed in front of the main hall. The smoke is said to have a healing effect, so most of the visitors soak themselves in it before visiting the temple itself.
Sensoji's fountain features dragons.
It's customary to lightly cleanse your hands and area around your mouth with the water.
I miss everything at that time but, I don't regret the way I have walked here. I'm proud of myself cuz I'm always surrounded by wonderful people. I won't forget it never ever.
