Every year on New Years day people go to temples in order to wish for good luck. I happened to be in Atami for New Years so I went to this temple. It was high in the mountains so there was a lot of greenery and beautiful scenery.
That thing in the middle is some kind of portal. People are supposed to walk in a certain path in order to enter the temple. It was like something out of Zelda hahahaha it was just missing the music.
Usually people get these papers out of a box to find out what their fortune will be. If people don't like their fortune they hang it on these ropes to avoid bad luck.
The line was huge!! I was fucking cold man!!!
The rest of the pictures are just of the surroundings. It was pretty cool and relaxing. It's nice to experience these types of places from time to time. I like the city but sometimes I just want to experience something different.
Enjoying life in Japan!!! Pictures of punk, people, food, places and other cool stuff from Japan!
