Relaxing One Of A Kind Cultural Experience
, Feb 2020
A uniquely Japanese experience. Seeing and participating in this process is like attending a tea ceremony or cherry blossom viewing gathering. The operator was very kind and took the time to explain the many health benefits offered by the different types of incense used in creating these unique Omamori. The temple scenery I viewed and history I learned was all beautiful. This activity offed a very welcome relaxing break from an otherwise fast paced activity packed trip. It was also fun to talk about this activity with other people I know in Japan. They all said the exact same thing “ O I have no idea what they put inside Omamori”.
