You can see many wooden tablets in the photo above.
Those tablets are called "ema"(絵馬").
It is votive picture tablet.
We write our prayers and wishes on the wooden tablet and give to shinto shrine.
In now a days, Sugawara Michizane who is a object of worship in this shrine, is worship as a god of study.
Because he was excellent scholar and poet.
Many students and their family come to pray for the pass of thire examination.
To be continued.
