Usokae (exchanging bullfinches) at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, Fukuoka
7th January, 2019 | at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, Fukuoka
A year of happiness secured by a golden bird. A wooden bird bringing good luck by turning last year's lies into this year's truths.
This is an event held at the shrine dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane (845-903) who is familiarly called Tenjin-sama. Dazaifu Tenmangu is the shrine which was constructed at the very spot where Michizane died.
People receive wooden dolls carved in the shape of uso (bullfinch), known as a lucky bird, and pray for good fortune. The bullfinch is believed to be Tenjin-sama's messenger.
These dolls are also sold at Yushima Tenjin Shrine and Kameido Tenjin Shrine in Tokyo, where long queues form to buy them.
