Hey guys, welcome to another vlog! I'm gonna vlog todayI'm here with my friends from CanadaThey don't have YouTube but i'll link their instagrams (Do you have Instagram?)And SnapChatThey're flight attendants and they have a layover in Tokyo for a couple daysSo we're chilling in Harajuku right nowI really wanted to go to the shrine and get my fortune for the yearThis is Meiji Shrine, and it's really busy because it's New YearsSo I'm not really sure if we're going to be able to line up and get anythingBut we can at least check it out and I can show it to you guysSo first we have to wash our hands and our mouth at this cleansing station hereSee how she's washing her dirty mouth? She wasn't joking? No no, yeah you're supposed to yeahOk, let me just wash my dirty mouthHey it's not that crowded!
I thought it was gonna be worseThat's true, most people are back at workWe're going to try and find the omikuji (fortunes) nowMaybe they're here? Where the people are lining up? Or they could be buying the charmsYeah I think these are the charmsOk here's the crowd, I knew they were somewhere! They're got it blocked off so you can't go up to the entrance of the shrine like you usually canSo everyone's throwing their coins and praying from behind the fence hereSo here's all the good luck charms you can buy this yearEveryone's lining up to buy themOver here you can write your wish on one of these wooden plaques and hang it up hereThey're called "ema" and they sell them here for 1000 yenYay we found the omikuji! The English ones are over…Oh Japanese is fine! So you shake the box until one of the sticks comes outI think it says 26Yes it's number 26and then the number is on the end of the stickOk let's see! I have the worst luckIt doesn't say if it's lucky or notRegardless of what path you take, some of them will be difficult and others won'tNo matter which path you take, take the righteous pathNo matter how much you might sufferIt's not saying you're gonna suffer buthaving a strong will, you will persevere sort of thingSounds goodSo these omikuji are different than other onesThe ones at Meiji Shrine, they're kinda like advicethat you just keep with you at all timesIt's not really a lucky or not lucky kinda thingIt's just giving you life adviceSo that's interesting, I've never had one of these beforeOmikuji! They also have english ones! This poem is composed in the traditional 31 syllable formby either the Emperor Meiji, or the Empress ShokenThe poem's message will have particular meaning for youI think yours is too, but they're all differentI feel like yours is mine!
