praying for boys and girls

My partner proposed to go worship at our local shinto shrine, for which I agreed. Our niece and some of our nephews are simultaneously receiving entrance exams to schools this early spring. Buying them a sacred card may benefit them. It is a custom, culture, habit, and the amalgamation of all these with some extra, unknown elements to buy such items seeking for a good luck or the grace of (Japanese) God.

It was a snow day. Hills were covered with snow. Snow has been removed in the car park, but the place was very wet.

The approach to the shrine. A moment of peace.
