Sacred places are typically marked with a shimenawa (special plaited rope) and shime (strips of white paper). Placed at the entrances of holy places to ward off evil spirits, or placed around trees/objects to indicate presence of kami. Made of rice straw or hemp, the rope is called nawa 縄. The pieces of white paper that are cut into strips and hung from these ropes (often hung from ropes on Torii gates as well) are called shime 注連 or gohei; they symbolize purity in the Shintō faith.

The Peace Arch in Hiroshima Peace Park. The stone sarcophagus inside the arch contains the names of all who fell to the atomic bombing. Every August 6, new names are added as hibakusha (a-bomb victims) die or new information is discovered identifying others who were killed at the time.
