What's Yakudoshi? In Japan, people believe that there are certain bad years in your life based on the Japanese calendar so you have to carry something "long" such as necklace and scarf etc...to avoid bad lucks.
Bad luck years are referred to as yakudoshi, with yaku meaning “calamity” or “calamitous” and doshi signifying “year(s)”. These years are considered critical or dangerous because they are believed to bring bad luck or disaster.
