Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Visit any Japanese shrine and you’ll see plenty of stickers and placards posted around the vicinity. These senjafuda, paper or wooden tags with names of worshippers etched or printed on them, also make for great souvenirs. At Stock +, you can have your name engraved on a wooden sign, which is then attached to a strap or string to create a unique keychain or necklace.

Don’t have a Japanese name? No worries; the staff can translate your name into kanji characters bestowed with good fortune. You are also able to choose the type of wood as well as the design featured on the front and back of the tag. Bonji sanskrit characters can also be added for good luck, and are determined by your Chinese zodiac animal.

A senjafuda starts at ¥1,100 and is available in various sizes; the extra large version is perfect as a personalised luggage tag. While you’re there, take advantage of the photo corner, where you can pose in colourful yukata and happi jackets. This service is free with any senjafuda purchase.
