Miniature curling stone charms have become a sold-out success at a shrine in the hometown of the Japanese women’s curling team which won bronze at the recent Pyeongchang Olympics.

In addition to being sold, the charms were given to the women who play for the Hokkaido-based team LS Kitami when they prayed for success at Tokoro Shrine on Feb. 3. The town of Tokoro is LS Kitami’s home base and is famous for producing some of Japan’s best curlers.
