Good Shot

I spotted this young lady with her prize from Meiji Jingu walking towards Harajuku and Omotesando. New Year arrows or Hamaya (破魔矢) are sold at most shrines in Japan. The Hamaya are displayed in peoples homes to ward off evil spirits. This is the first time that I have seen the target as a good luck charm. If I figure out what it is called and more information, I will post it here.

Nikon D600 with Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AI-S @ f2.8, ISO 100, 1/1600 sec.
