In the past, people brought straw sandals or waraji as offerings to temples, in hope of having healthy feet or to receive travel protection from the temple. Even though Japanese rarely wear waraji sandals anymore with the exception of a few monks, the custom still exists. Naritasan Shinshoji is one of the most important Buddhist temples in the Tokyo area, and the Head of the Chisan Shingon Buddhism sect.
