For those taking exams for school, entrance to university or for a certification. These amulets come from the Tsunashiki Tenman Shrine in Suma, a shrine dedicated to Tenjin, the god of learning and studying. The imagery of the eggplant is a bit of wordplay: eggplant is pronounced "nasu," which is another word for "to achieve, to accomplish."
