Ema are small wooden plaques on which Shinto worshippers write their prayers or wishes. The votive tablets or ema are then left hanging up at the shrine where the spirits or gods receive them. They usually bear various pictures of animals or other Shinto imagery and many have the word gan'i meaning "wish" written along the side.
