Amulet (omamori) in the form of a small pouch (with contents), made with brocaded silk with motifs of flower blossoms and characters for the temple's name (Monju-do) and the function of the amulet (for a good intellect) on a red background. The pouch is closed with a knot made of white silk cord, itself also used to attach the amulet in use. A green silk cord attaches a silver bell to the pouch.
