Did you have to change your planned travel but still want to go to Japan?
Are you interested in culture and tradition?
Would you like to taste a piece of Japanese culture comfortably at home?
Join us on a virtual experience to discover the secrets of the Visit at the Shrine!
Japanese culture specialist Mr.JAPAN will accompany you in a typical visit at the sanctuary (jinja) explaining manners, rituals and curiosities.
How to purify yourself before going to greet the god, which is the right way to do an offering and how many times you have to bow in front of the main shrine are only a few things you will learn during this experience.
Furthermore, we will try to put into practice what we have learned and, at the end, we will participate in a live ceremony by a real priest of the most ancient Japanese religion: Shintō.
