- I am seeking information about the zigzag papers that hang from ropes or sticks. I am told they contain prayers. How are they made and can they be used to protect against misfortune?
Do not be so discontent. Though I am new to the group, I am
not new to the religion. If you're wanting general information about
Shinto you can go online to the national Shinto Foundation. It is
at: http://jinja.or.jp/english/ or you can try this site.

helps. If not let me know.
