My grandmother went in Japan 50 years ago. During her travel, she collected a note concerning her future, but she didn't speak any words of Japanese. She has kept the note in her wallet for all these years. Now I would like to tell her the meaning of this old note. Could someone please help me? Unfortunately there is a missing character due to a small hole in the middle, I hope it is still undestandable. Thank you.
Without going into too much detail, this piece of paper is known as 'omikuji'. It's a fortune-telling paper that you pick randomly from a box at shrines and temples in Japan. There is a possible range of rankings from good fortunes to bad fortunes. The word 小吉, written in the top right and pronounced 'shōkichi', indicates that this particular fortune is 'small blessing', one of the good fortunes.
