Caption:

Oshogatsu (New Year) is a time of celebration. Japanese people go to visit shrines or temples.
Shrine visitors write their wishes on wooden plates called Ema. They then hang these wooden plates on rafters, hoping that their wishes will come true. Most people wish for good health, success in business or at school, love or wealth.
