  Offering prayers at the Shrine
by chatterley

You could spend 500 Yen to get a wooden block, wrote down your prayers and hang it up. Alternatively, you could write your prayers on a piece of paper provided, place it into the envelope and drop it into the box. The latter option is free.

There is a stall outside the shrine which sells little amulets (example: for good luck in examinations, for traffic safety, etc).
