Omamori is known as an important part of religious life in Japanese society. Omamori, which has been known since the Tokugawa era and still survives in modern Japanese society, is often known as part of the collective culture of Japanese society. However, behind its function as a spiritual medium, Omamori holds a meaning of harmony between humans and nature. With the library research, this article aims to explain the other meanings contained in an Omamori. It is in line with the teachings of Shinto whose concept is centered on nature and the environment. The form, type, and function of an Omamori also symbolize the meaning of harmony between humans and their environment that gives birth to attitudes that support the preservation of the natural environment.
