Many people carry omamori depending on the type of omamori, there are various forms of luck or protection it carries. There lucks for education, marriage, business, and family peace. For example, for traffic safety, ones with the suction cups are used to hang from windows or mirrors. Unlike the Christianity’s fish on car bumpers, the omamoris are kept inside cars, because they want to have it nearby. The significance of these amulets is that they give out an aura that makes one feel safe. People still believe in these charms because they know their god is looking over them wherever they are. The negative side of the use of omamori is that it will wear out after a year. So then visiting a temple each year will be mandatory to exchange the amulet.
