(Let me keep the header for the previous post to link "O.W.T" on Tue.)
*Prayer of the safety for the New Car at the Shinto-shrine*
Today, we went to the local shrine called 'Okazaki Hachimangu, 岡﨑八幡宮' to have the ritual to pray for not to have any accident with my husband's new car. And also had a protective amulet (hope the right words). Here is the page I posted about the same shrine with a big Camphor Tree and rare shell which named after German doctor called Dr. Sieboldtii.*Hope no serious accident for the future like our old one*
Omiyamairi literally means "a visit to a shrine." It's a Shinto ritual similar to the Christian baptism ceremony. It is for wishing the baby's healthy growth when the baby is about one month old. I wished to introduce our tradition and happy that they approved my offer.
We waited for the priest's former appointment of 'お宮参り, omiyamairi' was over.
I couldn't be bold enough to take pictures while having service inside the shrine. After the service, prayers directly to the car by the same priest of the same link page.
- Our new car is not fancy one (popular car). Considering my husband'd age, might be the last one :-) Our old one was 10 years old.
These are one-third in bloom cherry trees close to our house; taken on our way home. Hope to post full blooms soon♪ Beautiful sunny day for the shrine visit.
- Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;
