Ema Votive Tablets

For 500 Yen, your prayers and wishes can come true at the Meiji Shrine. Hung around a divine tree, these Ema are offered at Mikesai (morning ceremony held every morning) when the priests convey what’s written.

I was just reading the kind of things that people have written and I realized that all over the world people want the same things – happiness, closeness to your loved ones and doing something you love.
