day 118: i wish…


Next to temples in Japan people put their wishes on little wooden plates. I always tried to find out, what was writen on them, but never found anybody who could both sufficiently read japanese and speak good english. So anybody out there with those capabilities, please let me know what those people were wishing for.

  1. picture 3 is about entering university. The right part is the same: negai goto: my wish.You can wish for anything on an ema but most wishes are about entering a good school, uni, love etc… The kanjis are hard to read though because with the rain they tend to fade.
