Fukagawa Fudōson is a temple located in Kōtō-ku, Tokyo, holding a very special ritual: You may notice one or more cars parked inside the temple’s courtyard, right in front of the main building. The reason is that there is a custom here to bless the car before departing for a voyage…
Of course, you’ll also find inside a big assortment of nice traffic safety charms and, of course, I couldn’t resist and I bought one… After all, I do travel a lot.
And a small travel tip: a flea market is held here on every 1st, 15th and 28th of the month, so if you would like to visit a Japanese flea market, this may be fun.
