Shimekazari decorates doors at New Year and serves as a charm against evil spirits. The sacred Shinto rope is hung to indicate a purified place for receiving divinities.
The shimekazari is made by attaching good luck charms like bitter oranges, ferns and lobster to the sacred Shinto rope.
The good luck charms each have significance, the bitter oranges, for example, indicating prosperity of one's descendants.
