Wish cards

On the grounds of Aso Shrine, in Aso City, Japan, are these frames for holding wooden "wish cards." People buy blank cards at the shrine, then write a personal message on it and hang it on the frame. The most common wishes are for the health of a newborn child or success at an upcoming high-school entrance exam.
