Shrines in Japan

Shinto shrines are places of worship and the dwellings of the kami, the Shinto "gods". Sacred objects of worship that represent the kami are stored in the innermost chamber of the shrine where they cannot be seen by anybody.People visit shrines in order to pay respect to the kami or to pray for good fortune. Shrines are also visited during special events such as New Year and festivals. New born babies are traditionally brought to a shrine a few weeks after birth, and many couples hold their wedding ceremonies there. There are tens of thousands of shrines across Japan, some of which can be categorized into a few major groups of shrines.
