Used Ofuda and Charms

In Shinto, it is a general practice to return the old ofuda or charms after one year of receiving the divine protection from the deity and receive new ones. While it is recommended to return them to the shrine where they were originally obtained, it is acceptable to return them to any shrine in the country.
The used ofuda and charms are ritually purified at Setsubun festival and respectfully burned at the shrine.

You may keep the old ofuda and charms until your wish is granted, or you may keep them if they have fulfilled your wish. While it is recommended to receive the new ones, there are no strict rules in this regard.

It is strongly recommended to exercise caution when encountering them on any online platforms, as they may be imitations or sold by unauthorized vendors.
