Have you made a New Year’s resolution or do you have something you want to achieve this year? In Japanese tradition, people tend to choose a starting day for their good luck. So, when should you start? We found out there are 2 extra lucky days in 2020 on the Japanese calendar. Those are considered to be the best days to start new things including marriage and house-moving. Also, lottery stands are always crowded on these days.
First, we will introduce two types of lucky days in Japanese tradition.
The meaning of ichi-ryuu-man-bai day is that you can get hundreds of times harvest from a grain of seed. So it’s believed many benefits are received from very little. It’s a good day to start a business, have your new car delivered, buy or start using a new wallet, buy a lottery ticket and so on. But don’t do bad things or get into debt since you may have to pay the original price hundreds of times over!
