For some years now, I have been interested in visiting shrines at various occasions.
Today it is Setsubun, the end of the winter according to the old lunar calendar, so I went to Yoshida Shrine, the most famous shrine in Kyoto regarding this occasion, where people say most elderly people in Kyoto gather for the occasion.
Oh, birds chirp/
Shrine gave me the oracle/
