Virtual Jinja Visit

Hyper Japan is an annual festival of Japanese culture held in London, although the pandemic rather limited it this year and last. One of the online events this year is likely to be of interest to readers of this blog: a virtual visit to a jinja. The jinja in question, Fu Hachimangū in Shizuoka Prefecture, is not particularly famous, but it is a fairly large jinja, and worth a look. What is more, because the festival is held in London, there is English interpretation for the Japanese.

I have to confess that I haven’t watched the whole thing, because it is an hour long, and I have visited a lot of jinja in person, but I found out about it from an article in Jinja Shinpō, so I am guessing that it is all sensible.

Enjoy!

I have a Patreon, where people subscribe to receive in-depth essays on various aspects of Shinto, about once per month. If that sounds interesting to you, please take a look.
