Year of the Ox: “Ema” in a shrine, Omori-kaigan, Tokyo

I shot this at the first of the shrines we went to on Monday. This one is just up the road from our house, near Omori-kaigan Station.

It's the Chinese year of the Ox. But in Japan it's known as the year of the cow. Last year's year of the rat was cutie-fied into the year of the mouse here in Japan. :-)
