There is a corridor full of emas (votive tablets) behind the main hall of Hikawa Shrine in Kawagoe.  Hikawa Shrine is famous as a deity of matchmaking and keeping a family peaceful.  People draw their wish especially related to marriage and peaceful family life on an ema, a pentagon wooden tablet, here in Hikawa Shrine, and hang it at the corridor to make it come true.
