Going on trips
Journeys have been on my mind recently, and it reminded me of a trip I took to Kyoto for the first time way back. At one of the shrines I was encouraged to buy some of the lucky charms (お守り) from the stall in the gardens. There were literally dozens to choose from – charms that helped to earn more money, others that kept you safe on the road etc. I’m not sure if there was one for journeys but this painting – Ryokou Omamori (or is it Tabi Omamori?), is my lucky charm for just such an occasion. I don’t think you’ll find a charm quite like this one there.
