2023年は卯年(日本) / 2023 is the year of the rabbit (Japan)

This page summarizes the lucky days and directions for 2023 so that you can have good luck in 2023. We would be happy if our information could be of some help to you☆彡


梵字マンとウサギたち / Sanskrit Man and rabbits

There are 60 sets of Eto, which are a combination of “Jikkan (the ten Heavenly Stems)” of the ancient Chinese calendar with 10 days as one phrase and “Junishi (the twelve zodiac animal signs)”, which represent the calendar and time.

Eto for 2023 is Mizunoto-U (yin water). Mizunoto is the 10th of Jikkan and U is the 4th animal (rabbit) of Junishi, so 2023 is the 40th of 60 cycles.

Mizunoto represents the water that moistens the earth. Also, it is the end of Jikkan, and represents the state where new life grows from the end of life.

U (rabbit) represents “yin and wood” in the Yin-Yang and Gogyo (five elements). The year of the rabbit is said to represent “home safety” from the rabbit’s gentle character, and “leap” and “improvement” from the appearance of jumping. We hope your hard work will bear fruit and this will be a year of great progress for you☆彡

The guardian Buddha of the Year of the Rabbit is Monju Bodhisattva, and the Sanskrit character is “Man“.






恵方・吉方位 / Lucky direction

Eho is the direction in which Toshitokushin-sama, who is responsible for the good fortune of the year, is seated. Since it is determined by Jikkan, it varies every year.

The lucky direction for 2023 is south-southeast by south. It seems good to get amulets and hamaya at shrines and temples in the eho direction. It is said that hamaya is a sacred arrow and attracts good luck and wards off evil (bad luck) for the incoming year.

Happiness comes from east and west to the center. Rabbit items should be displayed in the east, west, and center.




縁起の良い日 / Auspicious days

Auspicious days occur several times a year, but the most auspicious day is called ‘Tensha-bi‘ (Heavenly day). It is sometimes read as “Tensha-nichi”. This day is said to be “the day when the heavens forgive the sins of all things”, and it is said that all obstacles will be removed and everything will go well.

In addition, there are “Ichiryu-manbai-bi (One grain 10,000 times day)” and “Tora-no-hi (Tiger’s day)”. “Ichiryu-manbai-bi” is said to be a lucky day when “one grain of rice will grow 10,000 times”, and is considered a good day to start things. “Tora-no-hi” is a lucky day related to financial luck that comes around every 12 days, and is also called “Kinun-shorai-bi (financial luck invitation day)”.
