well the view isn't really blocked at all, it sits right under it, and the tassels just hang
from the mirror, so I think it should be fine

Ready? One poster was for all intents and purposes correct, it is a form of 'good luck' charm. It is more specifically a religious (specifically Shinto) symbol of abundant harvest. It is likely a derivation of the buddhist 'mystic knot', which, having no end, symbolizes the infinite wisdom of buddha.

It's roots are in the Danjiri Matsuri (Danjiri Festival). The festival can be traced back to 1703 when the feudal lord of Kishiwada, Okabe Nagayasu prayed to Shinto gods for an abundant harvest at Fushimi Inari-taisha in Kyoto.

In the photo of a Danjiri cart, below, this knot can be vaguely seen draped across the front of the cart.

I personally find it funny that these have become popular with bB/xB owners considering the similarity in shape between the car and the cart.
