Let’s be friends!

The Yojyokan offers a wide range of products that are good for the mind and body, with the idea of “curing the mind and body.”

Food nourishes the body, and a relaxing space allows you to take a breather and heal your mind. Prayer nourishes the soul, which in turn energizes the mind and body.

This is the reason why we offer not only food but also sacred objects in a space where you can take a breather.

We also hold occasional solo exhibitions.

You can keep up to date with what’s going on at the Yojyokan through our LINE and Facebook pages.

Replace the Talisman Every Year

“Can I have more than one good luck charm?” OR “Can I keep it forever?”

Of course, you can have as many good luck charms as you want. What’s inside an Omamori? An Omamori is a small amulet bag closed at the top by a rope. In the case of Misogi Shrine, there is a very small amulet of Misogi Shrine in the bag.

By the way, if a Japanese household has a miniature Shinto shrine, what do they do with the talisman of the shrine? At the end of the year, they should replace the shrine’s talismans. Normally, we replace them on the 28th or 30th of December, but we avoid replacing them on the 29th because we say that the 29th will bring us pain and suffering. The reason to change the talisman is to obtain the power and blessings of the divine spirit by receiving a new charm at the end of the year, and to pray for the safety of the family in the new year.

The old talismans that have been enshrined in the household shrine are returned to the local shrine after a thank-you visit to express gratitude for a successful year. Thus, the amulet is the same as the talisman enshrined at the Shinto shrine. You should replace it once a year!
