"Usokae" (鷽替神事)

"Usokae" is held today and tomorrow at Kameido Tenjin Shrine. I brought an old "uso" (a carved wooden bullfinch) and got a new larger one.  By exchanging "uso" for new one, it is said that we can turn bad luck into falsehood and receive good luck instead.

There are many kinds of "ume" trees in the shrine grounds.  Some came into bloom.  We can also see Tokyo Sky Tree from the shrine.
