Funny event in Osaka

Some japanese rituals may looks quite strange for foreigners eyes ... That's probably the best ones to look for during your trip in Japan. Then, don't miss the Shimenawa Shinji ! It takes place at Hiraoka shrine on the 25th of December. From Tsuruhashi St. (on the Osaka loop line) take the Kintetsu Nara Line anbd get off at Hiraoka St. (440 yen, 20mn). After repalcing the sacred rope that mark the border between dirty world and pure shrine, priests will laugh loudly to scare the devils ! Don't hesitate to laugh with them for your own fortune ;-)
