Escape the hustle and bustle of the Tokyo city, and make your own scented omamori, a Japanese lucky charm, at a quiet temple surrounded by beautiful nature in Tokyo.
During this hour-long relaxing workshop, you can make omamori either for yourself, or for someone you love and give it to them as a heartfelt gift.
Gionji Temple, located within an hour from Shinjuku. After offering prayers at the main hall of the temple, let's get right into the action!
There are several kinds of OMAMORI bags you can make a pick from, and each of them has a specific effect. Choose in which area you'd like to have god’s blessing from "love relationship," "health and well-being," "fertility and safe delivery," "academic achievement," and "general luck."
Since Gionji is known as a "matchmaking temple," love relationship is your go-to choice! There is one for kids as well. Once you've decided on that, blend different kinds of incense to make your favorite scent and create an omamori charm that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
To top off your experience, enjoy a bowl of Japanese tea with some snacks while taking in the fragrant smell of the incense at the end of the workshop.
