Happy New Year!!

GTK suggests you to visit temples or shrines that enshrine lucky God for your happy new year.

First, if you want to success your business, you must visit Ebisu-jinjya Shrine during January 8th~12th.
Many people who hope to do good business in the new year come and pray. You can get a sacred bamboo grass here. You may see it with some decorations with images of Japanese Gods at the entrance of the restaurants in Kyoto.

Or, if you want to enjoy a temple tour that said to give you a good luck, Seven God Visiting tour on January 8th is recommended. Seven temples are located on the Sennyu-ji Temple Ground near Kyoto Station.
You can get a unique talisman with an image of one of the Gods at each temple.(¥300~¥500 each) Also you can warm up with sweet sake or sweet bean porridge being served.

Furthermore, if you want to enjoy a mountain walk before Seven God Tour, you can start at Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine that is famous for a thousand of red Shinto gates. From the top of the mountain, there is an easy trail heading to Sennyu-ji Temple.
