Got a computer that needs blessing? Tokyo can sort you out. How about a fishing rod in need of a bit of divine guidance? Not to worry - we've got a temple for that too. For anyone with an oddly specific wish they really want granted in the coming months, this little list out to help you find peace of mind.
Protect the health of your favourite pet
Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachimangu shrine
Because this shrine lets you bring your pets along for hatsumode, you’ll not only see cats and dogs there, but also rabbits, turtles, ferrets, hamsters, and even iguanas. While you are there, you can pray for the health and long life of your pet, and pick up an omamori (charm) to protect them from injury and illness. All sorts of charms are on offer. The ‘Bandana Omamori’ can be tied easily around the neck or leg of your pet, and it comes in red, blue and yellow, as well as a new version with an arabesque pattern, for 1,500 yen. The ‘Pet no Horifuda Omamori’ lets you have your name, your pet’s name, and your wish for your pet carved onto the charm itself. Those of you who want to visit the shrine with your pet will need to make an appointment in advance on the shrine’s website.
