Happy New Year!
I am writing a new chapter for life in Kyoto, let's have a good year together!
Where did you go for the new year shrine visit?
I went to the Goou Jinja Shrine close to the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
In this shrine where the boar is associated with a god, there are a lot of boar votive tablets and amulets inspired by boars.
Although the exhibition of the votive tablets is held until the end of January each year, the theme of this year, of course, is the boar.
The dignified looks of the boar are impressive.
