Hokkaido Jingu is familier for sightseeing spot than ever. There are many tourists and local visitors even if in winter.

From new year’s day, it has been crowded with the people who are trying to win their entrance examination for high schools or universities.

Many of them get an Ema (a votive horse tablet) for having their wish granted and hang it  on the rack.

Of course they don’t forget to draw a Omikuji(fortune) and bind it on the Omikuji rack or tree.
