Prayer Cards

Prayer Cards

Meiji Shrine
Tokyo, Japan

For a small price, visitors can buy a blank card and write their prayers, hopes and aspirations on it. Once done, they can hang it up with the thousands of other such cards and it is believed that these wishes and prayers are granted. The one card that I left in focus in this photograph asks for, among other things, 'A good financial package for college' suggesting it was written by Americans!
