Meiji Shrine wishing tree in Japan

This is a sacred Camphor tree located at the Meiji shrine in Japan. In Japan sacred trees have thick ropes around their trunks. This sacred tree has a special wishing wall surrounding its trunk. The idea is to write a prayer or wish on a small wooden tablet and hang it on one of the pegs on this wall. The Shinto priests then pray for all of the wishes on the tablets.
