It is now time again for the annual Gion Festival in Kyoto when these amulets (called chimaki) are replaced by new ones to keep evil spirits out of the house for another year.
And I hope this will work again!! Gendki de ne?

Neat! I still have the arrow I got while in Hiroshima. The evil still seems to be contained.
