Paper Fortune And Insensitive Woman

People buying fortune slips

Many worshipers bought the fortune slips

Shot at Senso-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.

In front of the main hall, there were some buildings which were selling paper fortune. Many worshipers bought it and read what was written on it under the eaves. The tourists came from overseas also seemed to buy. I wondered whether it was also common in other countries.

At least, I thought it was uncommon in the countries in which the major religion was the monotheistic religion. Beside the people who were reading the fortune paper with eagerness, I found a woman who had no interest in it.
