Ishiyama-dera temple, Kyoto
At the upper of gates of some temples are put many seals. Seals read one's names and address.

This seal is called "Senja-fuda(千社札)" and is put on buildings in temple. Visitors put the seals to wish their luck and also to leave their traces behind. The higher they can put the seals, the more they are believed to get happiness.
