Tags with artists' names in Kurumazaki Jinja

Kurumazaki Shrine in Kyoto holds Mifune Matsuri every year is also famous for a smaller shrine in its precincts.

It is dedicated to artists and attracts many actors, musicians, comedians, and geisha. They either buy an official offering from a shrine (like a fence pale) or just glue a tag (fuda) with their name or photo directly to the shrine building.
