Taken at Yakuoji Temple, Hiwasa. Omikuji are small pieces of paper with a fortune written on them. If people receive a bad fortune, they tie them onto nearby pine trees (although... that doesn't look much like a pine to me. Maybe any tree will do in a pinch).
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
