Ema, or Japanese wishing plaques, are found at temples throughout Japan. Purchase an ema by making a donation, then write your wish on the ema and and hang it up to release your wish to the kami (spirits). The ema hang until burned during a temple ritual or special event.
Tomorrow, we’ll visit Kitano Tenmangu Shrine and the monthly flea market which takes place around it.
