Fortunes tied near Kon-do

Fortunes tied

You can grab a fortune or “omikuji” near Kon-do. If you end up with a good fortune, you can keep it with you, but some people tie their fortunes whether good or bad to a tree, or in this case metal wires like those above, and leave them at the temple. It is generally considered better to tie a bad fortune to the specified place at the temple rather than carry it around with you.
