Yakubarai and the Superstitious

Posted by NaokiOkura

This class will focus around the Japanese belief of "Yaku-doshi" - the unlucky year. 


I will talk about when it happens, how it happens, and what people do every year in order to avoid suffering the worst from the Yaku-doshi. 


 


I will also talk about the "roku-yo" weekly system (six-day week system) and how each day of the week is underlined with a different fortune. 

Materials: 
An O-fuda from the jinja.
