Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a coffee table book to be casually perused, but more suited to those interested in learning about the Shinto shrines of Japan. It opens with a excellent short introduction to Shrine Shinto and its practices. It only covers 57 of the 80,000 plus shrines, but these are among the most famous and popular. It contains a wealth of information about each shrine's location, history, architecture, spiritual features, and best times to visit.

As a frequent traveler to Japan I found the information in the book useful in my desire to visit many of the shrines mentioned. I highly recommend the book for a good basic understanding of Shinto and the mythology of ancient Japan.

I know this book is currently in limbo, but I'm puttin' it out there for the universe to pick up on. I REALLY want this!! A lot! I go to Japan annually and my favorite thing to do is shrine crawl. Having a guide would be beyond fantastic!! Please, universe, get this into my hands!! I'll be your BFF. ^__^
