The Prayers in Meiji Shrine

Meiji Shrine (明治神宮) was still full of
people coming to pay the first visit of the year.
We call this visit Hatsu-mode (初詣).
One of the things I always love to
is to see what everyone has written on their ema (絵馬).
It’s a wooden plaque
and people write their prayers on it.
(Not sure how ethical it is…but I see a lot of people doing the same!)

I think this one was my favorite.
This little boy drew a picture of Ultraman
and also wrote as his prayer
“I hope I get presents.”
Too cute.
I hope he does, too.
